North London Partners in health and care (NLP) has launched a review of adult elective orthopaedic care services across north central London.
Adult elective orthopaedic care is usually planned surgery of bones and joints - typically hip and knee replacements, and other similar operations. The review covers Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington.
At present, elective adult orthopaedic care is delivered in 10 different sites in the area. The NHS believes there may be opportunities to improve that care by creating a smaller number of specialist centres. Current thinking is that emergency orthopaedic care will stay at local hospitals, as it is today.
NLP and Healthwatch Camden are working together to involve local people in a discussion about the future of these services.
