Spire London East 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.
I am a cricket fan and love music which is my way of relaxing while not at work. I am married to a doctor and we have two beautiful daughters who keep us busy at home.
