Each of us has a specific sub-speciality interest. All of us have an interest in Trauma surgery and hence the regular daily trauma lists (3 sessions/ week day + all day weekend trauma) are consultant lead, which benefits the SpR training. • Weekly Schedule (Maximum Part-time) : I have a weekly ‘Fracture clinic’ and two specialised elective clinics a) Hand Clinic (am.

I managed to persuade the management to fund this ‘Blackburn, Upper Limb service’ and recruited a dedicated multi-disciplinary team of clinical specialists/ extended role practitioners and trained them to be specialist professionals. I produced the job plans for each member and the rota with which I reduced the out-patient waits from 38 weeks to less than 6 weeks wait to see the consultant and less than 1 week wait to see the clinical specialists in the Upper Limb service. The multi-disciplinary approach with additional clinical specialists/extended role practitioners, started in Sept. 2001. • Since then this organisation and my practice development has been accepted and mirrored by other NHS Trusts and PCTs. • I started the Orthopaedic Research multi-disciplinary group in Dec.1999. A number of research topics and methodology have been discussed. This group also acts as the sounding board for quality of care issues and clinical governance in Orthopaedics. • I was involved in the set up of the first Practice Development Unit in Orthopaedics, with S/N Gill Bates, in UK (1999). • CHARITY  Started the registered charity in Orthopaedics in ELHT - ‘Blackburn Orthopaedic Research fund’.  Chaired the 1st and the only Wishbone walk held in Blackburn in 1999 and raised £18,000,00 for the BOA & Wishbone trust.  Ran the Flora London Marathon in 2008 (the centenary year) to raise £2,240.00 for the BOA research on Joints.

Twenty percent of elective surgery involves Knee Arthroscopic surgery and primary joint replacements. Eighty percent of my surgical procedures are day case procedures. All Upper-limb surgery i.e. Shoulder, Elbow & hand surgery, under my instruction is assessed for Outcomes and measured with ‘Internationally validated outcome measures’- DASH scores, Constants & Murley, Rowes scores. Appropriate shoulder therapy protocols have been provided by me. All Hand surgery patients are followed up under supervision, in a dedicated Hand therapy unit, lead by Clinical Hand specialist and two Senior Occupational Hand therapists, with outcomes data measured & recorded with DASH scores & ‘E-Link’ assessments.
