Local residents have been involved at every stage of our review
Over the past year, we have been talking to residents about how planned joint and bone surgery for adults, (such as hip and knee replacements) could be improved. To date, a number of local residents have acted as representatives in our governance structures. Additional representatives have also attended clinical design workshops to ensure that patients are at the centre of how services work in the future.
We’ve worked with doctors, nurses and other hospital staff involved in this kind of care to set out the detail of how it should work. We are now ready to plan for the future and over the summer, local hospitals have worked together to describe how they could deliver the kind of service we have set out. This will result in the hospitals providing a number of options for review.
Six local people are part of this review process and have joined our options appraisal panel to look at the options for the future.
There will be other opportunities to be involved in the review as the programme progresses. If you'd like to register an interest in being involved, contact us on the email at the bottom of the page.
We will be publishing the outcome of this process in the coming months and sharing our plans for the future of adult elective orthopaedic care in north central London. If you are interested in finding out more, or inviting a member of the review team to talk to your group about our work, contact us. We'd be happy to come and see you.
