Free Knee Surgery at Private Hospitals in Cambridge
Through the NHS e-referral system (formerly called ‘Choose and Book’), UK citizens are entitled to operations at a variety of private hospitals in the UK. Totally free of charge, this service is not known to most people.
Knee replacements, ligament reconstruction and arthroscopic cartilage surgery through Choose and Book are all undertaken by me, free of charge, at both private hospitals in Cambridge.
Please contact your GP or physiotherapist for more details of Choose and Book. Or contact The Cambridge Knee Clinic. Please note, certain restrictions apply. Please see the following for more details of Choose and Book: https://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/patient-choice/Pages/your-rights-to-choice.aspx
The Cambridge Knee Clinic regularly treats patients referred by Dynamic Health and Allied Health Professionals physiotherapy services, free of charge.
