The Virtual Fracture Clinic gives some patients with simple bone and joint injuries access to a specialist opinion and management without having to visit the fracture clinic in person.
An orthopaedic surgeon will review your imaging, such as x-rays, to determine what treatment is needed. The Virtual Fracture Clinic physiotherapist will then contact you by phone to explain the management.
If the injury is more complex, you may still need to come to the clinic to see the specialist in person.
If you have been to the Emergency Department, the Virtual Fracture Clinic will contact you within two business days after your visit.
