Emergency Knee Clinics

  1. I hold an emergency knee clinic on a Monday morning at The Nuffield Hospital, Cambridge, intended for urgent sports-related and other knee problems including knee fracture sustained over the week-end.
  2. Ski Injuries: contacting the  Cambridge Knee Clinic  directly, following any injury sustained abroad, will enable rapid assessment and care: 01223 253 763.  j.chitnavis@uk-consultants.co.uk. We will call you back whilst you are abroad.

Charges for self-pay patients

The charge for a new consultation is £260  (30 mins/as needed) and that for a follow-up is £165 (20 mins/as needed). Patients receive a copy of the clinic note detailing their symptoms, examination findings, results of scans/x-rays, as well as a diagnosis and treatment plan. Please note that costs for x-rays, scans and any surgery are separate. I will seek the lowest rates for any scans or surgery for my self-pay patients.
