In trauma, we offer a replantation service, hand trauma service, lower limb reconstructive service and burns service.

Candidates will be allocated an educational supervisor and be encouraged to participate in audit and research. Although lacking postgraduate deanery approval, the post is educationally sound. Those undertaking MCRS examinations will be supported through available educational programmes and attendance of courses. Those seeking specific experience in plastic surgery sub-specialities to suit their training needs will be supported by attendance of relevant outpatient clinics and operating lists.
