What services can I provide for you and your family?

General Practice Services

I provide consultations for a wide range of GP problems, for example: infections; ear, nose, and throat problems; aches and pains; and advice on other medical conditions.
I have access to a wide network of colleagues to whom I can refer if needed.

Sports Medicine Services

I aim to help you find a rapid accurate diagnosis to muscle, bone, or ligament injuries so that you can receive the right treatment from the start.
There are a wide variety of investigations available for me to refer to, and I work with very experienced and skilful Physiotherapy colleagues, as well as Podiatrists, Soft Tissue Therapists, Osteopaths, and Chiropractors.

Medical Examinations

I am able to perform medical examinations for a number of purposes, including: pre-participation sport examinations, pre-employment examinations, and some visa medical checks.
If you require a medical examination please contact me on one of the methods listed below and send me a copy of the requirements so that I can ensure that everything is available when the medical examination is performed.

Blood Tests

I am able to provide blood testing as part of the consultation if needed.
If there are specific blood tests that you require, please send me the list and I will be able to prepare in advance of the consultation.
