The Hand Unit at St George’s Hospital is a tertiary referral unit that treats patients from the south west London health sector and parts of Surrey. The Hand Unit specialises in all aspects of hand and wrist trauma and elective conditions.
The Hand Unit is led by four Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Consultants with specialist interests in hand and wrist surgery and one Orthopaedic Hand Consultant. Within our multidisciplinary team, we have a hand therapy department, hand nurse practitioners, specialist dressing nurses, a trauma co-ordinator and strong admin team.
Every weekday morning we run a consultant led hand clinic and a nurse practitioner led trauma clinic. The hand dressing clinics and hand therapy clinics are run in the afternoons.
