About the service

Trauma and orthopaedic outpatient clinics are held at Basildon University Hospital and at Orsett Hospital. Inpatient services are centralised at Basildon Hospital.


Trauma clinics
Trauma clinics are held at Basildon Hospital for emergency trauma referrals. 

Orthopaedic outpatient clinics
Adult patients are seen most commonly with back problems, degenerative disease of the joints (especially hips and knees), and less severe orthopaedic conditions such as nerve entrapment syndrome and internal derangement of the knee. 

Paediatric orthopaedic clinics
For children with gait problems, dislocated hips, clubfeet, cerebral palsy and other conditions.


COMBAT provides acute care for patients with hip and knee replacements in their own home:

  • Home visits prior to hospital admission to assess the patient prior to admission to ensure that support services are in place as soon as the patient is fit for discharge
  • Support and advice - anything from environmental assessments to meals-on-wheels and specialist equipment
