Arthritis affects people of all ages, in the UK around 10 million people have arthritis. If you’re suffering from joint pain, restricted movement, tenderness or stiffness come and see us. Our expert consultants will be able to guide you to the most suitable treatment ranging from painkillers and NSAIDs to surgical procedures. From Rheumatoid Arthritis affecting hands, feet and wrists to osteoarthritis in the knees, hips or spine our specialist orthopaedic consultants are on hand to relieve pain and reduce swelling.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
This is a common problem, with individuals who perform strenuous and repetitive hand and wrist motions. Symptoms include difficulty gripping, loss of dexterity, numbness in your hand, pain in your hand, finger or arm. In most instances we can conduct nerve conduction studies to establish the diagnosis and treat with a course of exercises, acupuncture or surgical treatment.
Total hip replacement
If you’re experiencing reduced mobility and are experiencing pain even while resting, you may have a hip joint that is worn or damaged. We would recommend that you come and see us, as you may require a Total hip replacement. Hip replacements are a common procedure where a damaged hip joint is replaced with an artificial one, the surgery is carried out under general anaesthetic or with an epidural. Most clients after Total hip replacement find they have an improved range of movement and feel a reduction in pain.

We are DDA compliant, with wheelchair access to the building and a consulting room and disabled toilet on the ground floor. We are currently having a ramp built to allow easy wheelchair access. In the meantime we are using something called a ‘stair climber’ so wheelchair users can access the building while the works are being completed. Our client advisors will be able to assist with any other requirements you may have.
If, for whatever reason, you miss your consultant appointment and haven’t informed us at least 24 hours in advance, unfortunately we will need to charge you £180 towards the appointment as a late cancellation fee.
Your doctor may feel that further tests, for example blood tests, are needed in order to confirm any diagnosis. Please bear in mind that you will need need to pay for these additional tests yourself, but whether you decide to go ahead with these is up to you. You should always feel your doctor has given you enough information to help you make an informed decision about any of the options for additional services they might go through with you.
Currently unless you are a non-UK resident we are unable to directly accept any PMI or private health insurance. In some cases for non-UK residents your international health insurance may mean that you can use Virgin Care Private as part of your policy. Please check with your insurer. Any additional tests that your doctor may feel are necessary may also be available through the NHS. If you are interested in this please ask the doctor or consultant to advise. Unfortunately most UK-based private health insurance schemes do not cover primary care (such as private GP consultations), though some insurance companies require specialist referrals to be made by a GP (private or NHS) before they will cover the cost. Some policies cover the cost of laboratory tests. We are not able to liaise with insurance companies directly, and you will therefore need to pay for your treatment as a private patient. We will provide you with an itemised invoice to assist you in reclaiming any payments your insurance company may be able to cover.

Health Tip #1
Think well. Be well. Positive mental health supports positive physical health will follow – so if you’re struggling, speak to a counsellor or GP.
Health Tip #2
Indulge in some aromatherapy, which has been proven to have rejuvenating qualities. Specific scents have also been shown to increase alertness and promote feelings of calmness.
Health Tip #3
Don’t let your allergies stop you. Even if it’s not sunny, put on shades when you leave the house. Pollen can enter your body through your eyes, so sunglasses—particularly the wraparound kind—can help decrease your exposure.
Health Tip #4
A glass of red wine has its benefits – both mentally and, it turns out, physically. A glass of red wine contains high amounts of antioxidants which not only help our cells fight against free radical damage, but also increase cholesterol levels in a positive way.
Health Tip #5
As it gets warmer, don’t be fooled by sunscreen – more expensive doesn’t always mean better. The SPF figure may be high, but check the UVB rating too and always pick a 5 star (even if it’s not your usual brand).
