We continue to maintain visiting restrictions (one person, once for one hour each day) via slots pre-agreed with the ward, full details can be found on our visitor page.
Patients and Visitors
If you are admitted to our hospital because you have broken your hip; (also know as a fractured neck of femur) this website will explain:
We aim for you to have your surgery within 36 hours of being admitted to hospital, if you are fit enough for the anaesthetic and operation. You should only wait longer than this if you need to have treatment for acute illness or need further X-rays or scans.
Once admitted to the ward you will be under the joint care of a named consultant surgeon and consultant physician. You will be cared for by a whole team of healthcare professionals.
