We provide a patient-centred service.  Undertake sub-specialist training to consultant surgeons of the future.  We have developed patient pathways around the Map of Medicine providing evidence-based practice across Primary and Secondary Care.  We are involved in national clinical trials including rotator cuff surgery and shoulder arthroscopy.
