Virtual fracture clinic

The orthopaedic team in our virtual fracture clinics review cases following attendance at the emergency department or urgent care centre. You do not need to attend the hospital for the assessment to take place.

Clinicians will look at your X-rays and medical notes and a trained, experienced orthopaedic physiotherapist or nurse will telephone to discuss your treatment and management. Following the phone call, you may be discharged by phone or if you require further specialist help you will be referred to the most appropriate clinic to meet your needs. If you are not available on the telephone a message will be left where possible.

Patients and their GPs will receive a letter outlining the assessment and outcome.

If you are having difficulty at any stage, please call the team on:

  • Barnet Hospital: 020 8216 4445
  • Royal Free Hospital: 020 7472 6222
