Orthopaedic Department in-patient waiting times

January 4, 2019

The Orthopaedic Department has been experiencing very high demand for the last few years which has resulted in both the States of Guernsey and the Medical Specialist Group investing in a fourth orthopaedic surgeon to help improve capacity.  Service pressures however continue to be high.

In-patient waiting time is much longer than we would like and we are doing all we can to improve the situation and are looking at a variety of options in the hope we can reduce the time spent waiting.  This includes seeing if other providers can help but the demand for orthopaedics has considerably increased across the UK too resulting in many hospitals also having to extend their waiting times significantly.

Both MSG and HSC are actively working together on plans to try and increase capacity for patients requiring orthopaedic surgery. 

To contact HSC’s Customer Care Team please phone 01481 725241 ext. 4230 and to contact MSG please phone 01481 238565.
