They perform a variety of orthopaedic surgical procedures on patients referred to one of our hospitals. As a group we are proud of our recent PROMs scores. The Practice Plus Group, Shepton Mallet Hospital is rated a number one in the country for knee replacements and is in the top 5% for hip replacements.

We are also leading in orthopaedic procedure as evidence by our day case arthroplasty pathway which we are now using routinely across our hospitals, significantly improving patient outcomes.

At Practice Plus Group you will be supported by our team of administrators allowing you to focus on patient care. As all our surgery is elective this means it is very rare for any list to be cancelled, so your start and finish times are usually predicable enabling you to have a life outside of the hospital. Work life balance is important to us at Practice Plus Group.

Our medical leadership structure is considered our ‘jewel in the crown’ with local leads in each speciality supported by a local Medical Director and National Clinical Directors and Medical Director. This structure not only means all our consultants have access to the support and knowledge they need but also provides clear career pathways for those looking to progress.

We are small enough to facilitate close working relationships, but large enough to make a significant contribution across many avenues of healthcare and operate large diverse health delivery models. There’s a very positive attitude among staff – and patients – here which is very refreshing. Colleagues have a genuine ‘can do’ philosophy which results in patients who are incredibly positive about the experience they’ve received.
