Your stay at the Oaklands Bone and Joint centre will start with a referral from your GP, you will then be seen by the appropriate Orthopaedic Consultant in our outpatient clinic. If your Consultant decides that an operation is the best treatment for you, you will be given a date for your surgery.
Our nurses are in attendance at the outpatient clinics and will therefore carry out your pre-assessment; you will be given a home assessment questionnaire which you will need to return to the centre as soon as possible.
Our appointments team will contact you well in advance of your operation to discuss a mutually agreeable date for your surgery, if you have not had your pre-assessment we will arrange this for you. You will be sent confirmation of these dates in writing together with the welcome pack.
During the pre-assessment your general fitness for surgery will be assessed by a specially trained nurse. This will include taking a medical history, including current medication, a blood test, urine test, MRSA screening, ECG and x-ray if required.
The home assessment forms are then sent to the discharge team; they will check through these and contact you prior to your admission if necessary. Many patients manage perfectly at home without the need for additional support at home but should you need support from the community; the discharge team will liaise with you and your local primary care team.
