A meeting was held at Bolton Arena for local General Practitioners to discuss the role of open MRI in musculoskeletal diagnosis. This was a successful evening with attendees supporting the idea of a One Stop Orthopaedic and Sports Injury Clinic. This would give patients the opportunity to have a thorough consultation with MRI and Ultrasound diagnostics on site for same day examination.

Patients will be seen by a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, have an MRI/Ultrasound examination (if necessary) and the results on the same day.
