Elderly Medicine

We provide treatment for older patients (although there is no lower age limit) across our five complex care wards as well as outpatients, and have close links with orthopaedic and surgical wards. We have specialist clinics for conditions such as falls and Parkinson’s disease and work closely with the members of the wider team such as physiotherapists to provide care for all aspects of the patients’ health and promote independence where possible.


The Trauma and Orthopaedic Department provides a range of musculoskeletal services, from orthopaedic medicine to complex surgery. We have established a centre of excellence, with a group of 11 consultants providing a general trauma service and appropriate specialisation in key areas.
