The Orthopaedic department comprises two Orthopaedic wards with 54 beds, 3 theatres and an outpatient department. In addition there is access to wards for children, young adults and day cases.

There is a dedicated 15-bedded nurse/therapy led Orthopaedic rehabilitation unit on site for elective post operative patients.

Regional specialist facilities for plastic surgery, lower limb and acetabular reconstruction are at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital, Neurosurgery at Addenbrookes hospital, Cambridge and Spinal Injuries are referred to Lodge More, Sheffield.

The three Orthopaedic theatres all have vertical laminar flow. Daily, five of the theatre sessions are utilised for elective Orthopaedics and one afternoon session is dedicated to Trauma. At the weekends for appropriate emergencies there is a general theatre available for use.

There is a fully equipped plaster room staffed by 3 experienced technicians. The Orthotics department is also attached to the outpatient unit.

The Orthopaedic department is supported by a well equipped diagnostic imaging department providing all the standard diagnostic imaging facilities including Helical CT, MR scanner and ultra-sound. It is hoped that in the near future there will be a nuclear medicine facility.

The hospital has a good Physiotherapy department. There are also facilities at Lowestoft, Great Yarmouth, Beccles, Halesworth, Southwold and the GP Practices.
