Overview

We provide a full range of emergency hand injury services including non-surgical and surgical treatments and hand therapy.

The specialist service covers a large area to the west of London. We take referrals from the Wexham Park Hospital Emergency Department as well as hospitals, minor injury units and family doctors.

For patients

If you injure your hand, check whether you can self-care or need to visit hospital. NHS 111 can provide advice. 

If you need emergency treatment, visit your local minor injury unit or emergency department. If needed, they will refer to our specialist hand service. 

For clinicians

To make a referral, please phone the on call plastic surgery SHO via the Wexham Park Hospital via switchboard (0300 614 5000).
