Kevin Tucker – Advanced Musculoskeletal Practitioner
The British Orthopaedic Association of Surgeons recommends timely access to physiotherapy for all fracture clinics.
Embedding physiotherapists within the fracture clinic multidisciplinary team (MDT) leads to better patient outcomes.
Prior to COVID-19, SWBH did not offer physiotherapy in fracture clinics and there could be lengthy delays to treatment.
Since introducing this service the number of appointments have reduced and there is an improvement in patient care.
