Nottingham Elective Orthopaedic Services (NEOS) is a specialist clinical unit within Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust.

The service provided at the NCSEM-EM is appropriate for patients over the age of 18 years who suffer from musculoskeletal pain, including meniscal tears, chronic knee instability or ligamentous injury, mechanical hip, knee or shoulder pain, osteoarthritis, shoulder impingement, capsulitis, rotator cuff tear, and shoulder subluxation or instability.

We welcome patients from sporting backgrounds but also those whose condition impairs their general mobility.


All appointments are made through referral from your GP. You should initially make an appointment with your GP to discuss your problem after which your doctor may refer you to our department. GPs can then make an appointment through choose and book.
