Orthopaedic Outpatients department undergoing major refurbishment

Salford Royal’s Orthopaedic Outpatients department is undergoing a major refurbishment.

 

Patients will benefit from a much more modern, spacious environment once the programme of works is completed in July.

 

Consultation rooms in the Orthopaedic and Fracture Clinic department will be bigger and self-contained, meaning X-rays and 1:1 discussions will be carried out in the same room enabling patients to view the X-ray images with the doctor.

 

The first phase of the project, incorporating a new plaster room, is now complete and the second phase to create a new treatment area is underway.

 

Phase 3 and 4 will focus on the consultation rooms while the final stages will include work on a new reception area.

 

Joanne Hubert, department manager, said: “The refurbishment will bring the department up to spec with the other recently developed areas of the hospital.

 

“The improvements will ensure we can continue providing the best possible services for our patients in a bright, modern department and the finishing touches will include pieces of artwork featuring local scenes.”

 

During the programme of works, disruption to patients will be kept to a minimum.

 

From March 10 until July 13, all Orthopaedic and fracture clinic patients will need to book in at the main outpatients department on the ground floor. All appointment letters and texts will inform patients of this temporary arrangement.

 

A wayfinder map, directing patients from Outpatients to the Orthopaedic department, will be available when booking in and greeters will be on hand to direct patients to the correct clinic area.
