Sheffield Elective Orthopaedic Centre celebrates one year since opening

 A celebration event was held to mark one year since the opening of the Sheffield Elective Orthopaedic Centre (SEOC).

More than 2000 patients have been treated at SEOC at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital since it opened, and the centre has played a key role in enabling patients whose operation was paused during the pandemic to have their procedure as quickly as possible.

Opened in Spring 2023, the centre delivers elective lower limb arthroplasty, soft tissue knee, shoulder and elbow and foot and ankle surgery.

The centre is a self-contained unit where patients can be admitted, have their surgery, recover, and be discharged – all from one purpose built area.

It has high-spec facilities, including:

• Four operating theatres, including recovery areas.
• Dedicated admissions ward, day case unit and inpatient ward.
• An Enhanced Care Unit.
• Therapy treatment facilities

Amjid Ali, Clinical Director for the Musculo-Skeletal Care group, said: “This centre has made a huge difference for patients accessing elective orthopaedic care.

"We have an outstanding multi-disciplinary team all passionate and dedicated to providing the best service. A massive thank you to all members of the team at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital and Northern General Hospital for their amazing teamwork and helping to make the first year of SEOC a real success story.”
