Treatment restrictions due to coronavirus (COVID-19)

As part of our longstanding relationship, we are proud to be dedicating our resources to the NHS at this important time. As a result many of our treatments are currently suspended and we are reviewing all planned procedures and consultations. We are making every effort to talk to impacted patients and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Personal Profile

I enjoy playing chess (particularly online), however my enthusiasm is not matched by my skill. I am a family man and love spending time with the children although they often drive me crazy.

A keen hobby of mine is fiction writing. I have written several short stories and also published two novels, both of which are in print and in the top 200,000 best sellers on!
