In Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale PCT we are launching a pilot sub-specialty clinic for Upper Limb problems.
The new clinics are designed to offer patients a service focussed specifically on upper limb conditions and complaints giving an even more efficient and effective pathway for upper limb complaints. Limited slots will be available initially, bookable via Choose & Book, with more added as the pilot develops.
The pilot features direct listing of patients no to surgical lists at the local BMI hospital, meaning a shorter pathway, less outpatient costs and better continuity of care.
Initially run out of our Rochdale site and for Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale patients, the pilot is one step in an ongoing process of sub-specialty clinics in development within the service.
