"I find the atmosphere warm and relaxing. The staff are helpful and happy with time to discuss medical matters."
I have been a Wirral GP at the same practice since 1996. I see the full variety of medical problems varying from blood pressure, infections, back pain to joint problems and stress.
Specialising in musculoskeletal problems since 1997, I qualified as a sports medicine specialist (masters degree in 1996). I perform soft tissue, trigger point and joint injections.
Since 1996 I have performed approximately 4,000 joint and soft tissue injections.
In addition to the Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group Musculoskeletal Lead, I am also national speaker to GPs on musculoskeletal medicine.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr David Price at Spire include:
Spire Murrayfield Hospital Wirral 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.
