Clinics

I hold outpatient clinics at The Nuffield and/or Spire Hospitals in Cambridge every week.

@ Nuffield Hospital  on Monday AM.

@ Spire Hospital on Thursday PM, Wednesdays PM.

Please note, clinics are not held at our office address.

Charges for self-pay patients

The charge for a new consultation is £280  (30 mins/as needed) and that for a follow-up is £160 (20 mins/as needed) . 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. MRI costs off peak in London start at approximately £270. We accept payment by bank transfer (BACS) or cheque only.

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. The process requires a specific Choose and Book referral to me via your GP. Once that referral is received, I can undertake all necessary investigations and any surgery without cost to the patient.

Please contact your GP for more details of Choose and Book. Or contact The Cambridge Knee Clinic. Please note, certain restrictions apply. Neither I nor my secretary can organise the referral directly.  Please see the following for more details of Choose and Book: https://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/patient-choice/Pages/your-rights-to-choice.aspx
