About me


As you are no doubt aware, we are unable to provide any private outpatient consultations, investigations or surgery until the Nuffield Hospital Plymouth is no longer required by the NHS.

In the meantime, I am happy to arrange telephone or video conversations. This is in no way a substitute for a face-to-face meeting. However, if you think it would be helpful to discuss your condition and what might be the correct course of action when the covid crisis is over, please contact the Nuffield Hospital using the email or phone number below.

It would be very helpful to have a written assessment of your current problem and past medical history from your GP but if this is difficult to obtain a short summary from yourself be suffice.
