Private consultations are offered at Thornbury and Claremont Hospitals. My service is patient centred with consultation times offered inside and outside of normal working hours making it accessible and convenient for the patient. I offera personal and individual service with generous length of appointment times to enable all patient’s concerns and worries to be addressed.
