Three specialties of our Outpatient Department have also recently launched Patient Initiated Follow-Up (PIFU). The teams in Trauma and Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Cardiac Rehabilitation now support patients to manage their own care and to decide when a follow up appointment with the clinical team is needed if they experience a change in their condition or have any concerns within a six month period.  

Other specialties within the Outpatient Department are soon to offer PIFU following the successful implementation.
