We are delighted to share our latest annual report, detailing the incredible things the ORI team have been doing to mitigate the effects of Covid-19.
Professor Middleton said: “This issue describes the amazing things the team have been doing to help with the Covid-19 pandemic. Our staff were redeployed to the local hospitals. This included involvement in testing Covid-19 samples, vaccine trials, organising Poole Hospital’s response to the pandemic, virtual reality surgical training and the reallocation of our hip fellows to trauma wards. Patients suffering from osteoarthritis were not forgotten. Education and exercises classes previously delivered in the physiotherapy department or gym were moved online. A series of self-help videos was also produced and made available to the public. All of our clinical trials continued in a modified form, responding to Covid-19 restrictions.”
