What is the Wrist Splint Service?
The splint stabilises the wrist in a straight and sometimes slightly bent-back position, thus minimising the pressure on the median nerve and allows the patient a period of ‘relative rest’ from movements, which may make the carpal tunnel syndrome worse.
What is the referral process?
Please use the Splints Referral Template to refer the patient to us. This form needs to be imported into the EMIS system you use if this hasn’t been done.
All referrals should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will process the referral within 5 working days. Once processed, we will send you a confirmation of the request, and the splint – along with the fitting instructions – will be sent to the patient.
