About Me

Involves taking a detailed history of your current problem, all necessary and routine questions will be asked to help with diagnosis prior to a physical examination. It may be helpful to bring a list of your current medication to save time.

In most cases, the physical examination will require you to undress, so you may feel more comfortable wearing appropriate clothing.

In some cases, orthopaedic, surgical or rheumatological intervention may be necessary. I will discuss options with you as many conditions will respond better to a surgical rather than conservative approach.

A letter will be written to your GP following initial consultation outlining the examination findings and the management or treatment as indicated. A duplicate will be sent to you.

Any other correspondence i.e. referral for diagnostics or further GP or consultant correspondence will also be duplicated for your own records.

Consultation time:
Sessions generally take about one hour initially, but where possible, this is flexible as it is often unreasonable to attempt to contain a session into a rigid time slot. I arrange my patient list to accommodate this flexibility.  In some simple cases, initial consultation is around 40 minutes.

Follow-up sessions are generally around half an hour, although, again this is flexible.  The number of follow-ups is also flexible.  It is not normally necessary to book a set number of follow-up sessions in advance, unless requested by you. 


Initial consultation: £45
Follow-up sessions: £35

Any equipment issued will be charged separately, if required.
