We are a small team providing a service to approximately 8,500 patients a year.
Patients are treated with a range of conditions, from fractures to congenital birth defects. Our qualified technicians apply and remove a vast range of casts in plaster of paris and resin, as well as surgical appliances and bespoke items.
Patients should contact the Plaster Room with any concerns regarding their injury/condition/cast/brace. If out of hours, please contact Accident and Emergency. We are available to offer advice to clinical staff as well as patients.
We promote a calm and relaxing atmosphere, encouraging family members to accompany relatives to hear important care advice and instructions “two pairs of ears are better than one”.
