We know that many of our patients are in a lot of pain, so the sooner they can be seen by our consultants the better. Because we deal exclusively with scheduled care, and no emergency cases, not only are our waiting times short, but our patients are unaffected by NHS cancellations of surgeries.
If you have had to wait more than 18 weeks for your treatment to start, you are entitled to switch hospitals. Find out how to switch waiting lists.

If you are looking to pay for yourself, please speak to one of our friendly self pay advisors to learn how you can be treated privately today.
Due to a technical issue we have sent text reminders in error to some previous patients. Unless you do have an appointment with us in the next 24 hours we kindly ask you to ignore the text message and refrain from calling to report the issue.
