Targeted review into care of orthopaedics patients

We are carrying out a review into the care of some of our patients and have contacted them directly.

We asked the Royal College of Surgeons to review our paediatric orthopaedic service, after concerns were raised by a number of our patient families and staff.

We take all concerns incredibly seriously and have written directly to all those patients and their families who may be affected. We know that for them this could be a worrying time and we are sorry for the concern these letters may have caused.

We are committed to learning from every single patient that we treat, and to being open and transparent with our families when care falls below the high standards we strive for.

If you have any questions about the review, please contact our Patient Advice Liaison Service (PALs) on 0207 829 7862 or by email PALS@gosh.nhs.uk.
