We aim to provide a comprehensive high quality trauma and elective orthopaedic inpatient and day case surgery service.

We have facilities at Darlington Memorial Hospital, University Hospital of North Durham, Shotley Bridge Hospital, Bishop Auckland Hospital and Chester-le-Street and Sedgefield Community Hospitals.

We aim to provide immediate access to hospital admission when required at DMH and UHND and definitive surgical management within 48 hours of admission.

We have an excellent reputation in the region for the delivery of high quality training of the orthopaedic surgeons of the future.

'I have to compliment everyone on their pleasant persona and their expertise and knowledge. By the end of the 5 days, I did not feel as though I had been in a hospital ward and was very relaxed.'

Patient, Ward 16 Orthopaedics, University Hospital of North Durham
