Owing to the current Coronavirus situation our clinical practice has changed. You may be initially offered the option of a remote consultation over the telephone or by video call. These appointments can be arranged by contacting the appointments desk at the hospital where you wish to be seen. If you need to be seen in person, please contact our respective secretaries.


Careful consideration is necessary before considering steroid injections during the Coronavirus pandemic. Further information can be found here.

The private hospitals where we operate are currently catering for NHS as well as private patients. Non-urgent surgery can be arranged for private patient but is likely to incur delays. Please look out for updates.
