Summer SCOT Meet, 2019
Mr Arpit Jariwala, Consultant Upper Limb and Trauma Surgeon NHS Tayside and Honorary Clinical Reader, University of Dundee, was an invited guest speaker at the Scottish Committee for Orthopaedics and Trauma (SCOT) meeting to share his various Upper Limb Service improvement initiatives which he has undertaken at NHS Tayside.
The Summer SCOT Meet was held in Dunblane, Scotland on 30th August 2019. This is a meeting of all Scottish Orthopaedic Consultants and Trainees which was very well attended.
Mr Jariwala spoke on various Upper Limb Service improvement initiatives that he has undertaken along with a keen and dedicated team during the last five years that have led to significant service improvements and reducing costs but more importantly improving patients’ outcome and experiences. These initiatives included reducing the use of Ultrasound by GPs for shoulder pain, revising the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome pathway and the Shoulder Pain pathway, all of which have been commended by the orthopaedic fraternity and the orthopaedic representatives of Scottish Government.
