Meet Desmond, our Orthopaedic CNS

Our Orthopaedic CNS plays a key role in the delivery of current and evidence-based care and treatment that is required for the patient.

Desmond is at the centre of each patient’s care and is able to provide the relevant information and appropriate liaison between other professionals (Consultants, GPs, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, etc) to improve the experience for patients. He provides support for patients face to face, via telephone or via email, throughout the whole patient journey.

Support is provided at many points of the patient’s journey:

  • Pre-operative assessment
  • Daily ward rounds when a patient is admitted for a procedure
  • Post-op follow up calls and advice
  • Post-op review with consultant
  • Fitting of medical aid devices
  • Providing emotional and psychological supportOne of the key role of our CNS is to facilitate the provision of clinically competent care by staff through education, role modelling, team building, and quality monitoring.
  • This ensures that we remain a centre of excellence for Orthopaedics, providing the best evidenced-based quality care to our patients.
