RNOH study morning for Doctors, Midwives and Health Visitors

The RNOH are holding a practical study morning to primarily educate our local referring services about our neonatal hip clinic for management of Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip.

We have a fast-track baby hip clinic at the RNOH, to diagnose and treat DDH in babies under the age of 6 months.
