Charles Pailthorpe specialises in hand and wrist surgery. He is available for face to face consultations.

To be controlled the Coronavirus pandemic has resulted in social distancing and self isolation. This means that being restricted to home increases the risks of injuring the hand increase particularly with DIY and gardening. PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND PROTECT YOUR HANDS as the NHS is already under huge strain.

My colleague Miss Claire Middleton at the Royal Berkshire Hospital has prepared advice on the mangement of finger fractures. Please view the page here and the leaflet can be downloaded here.
