The Hand Practice is headed up by leading hand surgeons, Mr Anthony Armstrong and Mr John Dickinson, supported by a team of experts offering patients specialist treatment and advice on a wide range of hand and wrist disorders.

We are able to provide top quality, affordable patient care, from diagnosis to treatment and rehabilitation with a single point of referral, short waiting times, and with appointment and treatment times to suit the patient.

The hospital benefits from on-site X-ray, MRI, CT, ultrasound and works closely with GPs to ensure they are kept up-to-date with the very latest in treatment technology.
