WHO WE SUPPORT
The Liverpool Orthopaedic and Trauma Service
The Frostick Foundation supports the activity of The Liverpool Orthopaedic and Trauma service that is not routinely covered by the NHS. The foundation provides funds, for all staff within the department; supporting, for example, the continuing education of staff; the funding of research projects within the department, and allowing staff the opportunity to attend conferences to present that research. It can also provide funds to projects and initiatives designed to improve the experience of patients using the service
AND TRAUMA SERVICE
Liverpool University Hospitals NHS FT
LIVERPOOL TRAUMA SERVICE
All inpatient orthopaedic trauma services are now located at Aintree Hospital, the home of The Cheshire and Merseyside Major Trauma Centre.
By concentrating all trauma services on one site we are better able to offer subspecialist orthopaedic services for those with complex injuries and now have the capacity to deal with all patients requiring orthopaedic trauma services
CHESHIRE AND MERSEYSIDE MAJOR TRAAUMA CENTRE
In 2012 plans were first drawn up to establish a major trauma network in Cheshire and Merseyside with a collaboration between Aintree University Hospitals, Royal Liverpool University Hospital and The Walton Centre for Neuroscience. Since 2016 all patients suffering major trauma have been admitted to the Aintree campus although some less severe injuries continued to be treated at The Royal.
The merger of the 2 departments has allowed this plan to be completed with us now having a facility, and the staff, on the Aintree site that can specialise and focus purely on orthopaedic trauma
LIVERPOOL ELECTIVE ORTHOPAEDIC UNIT
Based at Broadgreen Hospital our elective centre now has the capacity to deal with all of Liverpool's elective orthopaedic surgery. With 7 state of the art, ultra-clean air theatres and 4 specialist wards, we can offer planned elective orthopaedic surgery in a separate unit, ring fenced from the rest of the hospital, ensuring elective services can continue even when emergency capacity is stretched.
