Broken bone clinic moves closer to hand

As part of the £150 million investment programme to transform the Lister hospital in Stevenage, a new £1.1 million fracture clinic has opened in a more convenient part of the hospital.

Jane Wheeler, sister for the fracture clinic, said:

“Our wonderful new fracture clinic in the outpatients department is easier for patients to get to. We’d like to thank all our patients for bearing with us over the last few months as we waited for our bigger, brighter new clinic to open.”

Helen Beaton, the service’s matron, went on to say:

“Our fracture clinic is used by thousands of patients a year – mostly by people who have broken bones, dislocated joints or those who have been sent to us by their GP. The new clinic has more consultants available, and having our own x-ray machines in the clinic makes appointments easier for patients.”Fracture clinic 1
