Dr Luke Bennetto
BM, MD, MRCP (UK)
At the Spire Hospital Bristol I am very happy to provide an opinion and manage any neurological presentation or condition. My practice and expertise at the Spire mirrors my NHS and University activity.
I am the lead clinician in Neurology at the University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust. I run neurology clinics at the Bristol Royal Infirmary, Frenchay Hospital and the regional neuro-ophthalmology clinic at the Bristol Eye Hospital. I am in charge of Neurology junior doctors in Bristol. I help run multiple sclerosis treatment trials at the BRaMS centre at Frenchay Hospital.
In my role as Honorary Senior Lecturer for the University of Bristol I regularly lecture and train medical students and junior doctors. I am a Medical Finals examiner for the University of Bristol.
I developed a deep interest in neurology during medical school which has grown into a fascination over the years. I was awarded an MD for my thesis on disability in multiple sclerosis at the University of Bristol. I have published work in peer reviewed international journals on multiple sclerosis, brain tumours, optic neuritis, trigeminal neuralgia, and hydrocephalus.
Please note: Dr Bennetto is unable to see patients with BUPA or AXA insurance as these companies will not meet his standard fees or allow Dr Bennetto to claim the shortfall from these customers. All other insurance and self-pay customers are welcome to see Dr Bennetto.
Spire Bristol Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.

Away from work my hobbies include kite surfing, wind surfing, sailing and tennis although my major interest is my wife and two young children
