Appointments and Consultations

To protect you, your family and the staff of RNOH Private Care, we now have the facilities to offer video consultations. Your consultant will tell you if your appointment is to be carried out in this way and their practice secretary will provide you with all of the information you need to do this.

If you are asked to attend RNOH Private Care outpatient centre for your appointment, please ensure that you read the information below and follow any social distancing instructions when you arrive at the hospital.

Coronavirus Information

Stay at Home

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home)
  • If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home

Do not meet others, even friends or family. You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.

What To Do If You Need Medical Help

If you need medical help for any reason, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

If you have symptoms of coronavirus (high temperature or a new, continuous cough), use the 111 coronavirus service.

If you need help or advice not related to coronavirus:

  • for health information and advice, use the NHS website or your GP surgery website
  • for urgent medical help, use the NHS 111 online service – only call 111 if you're unable to get help online
  • for life-threatening emergencies, call 999 for an ambulance

A total hip replacement, allowing people to live active lives without pain, is one of the most successful medical procedures. However, over time, a hip replacement can fail, and your doctor may recommend a second procedure called revision total hip replacement.

The goal is the same, but revision hip replacement is a more extended, more complicated procedure requiring extensive planning and specialised tools and implants.

More Information

The most apparent symptom of primary hip replacement failure is the pain. Other symptoms may include stiffness and reduced mobility.

The most obvious will be the pain, but your GP may also conduct the following: -

  • X-rays: to see loosening or a change in the position of the components
  • MRI scan to help determine why your hip has failed and the condition of the bone
  • Blood tests to see if you have an infection or a reaction to the metal components in your hip

The cause of loosening is not always apparent, but could be: -

  • Repetitive high-impact activities
  • Obesity
  • Wear of the plastic liner between the ball and the metal cup
  • Younger patients "outlive" the life expectancy of their artificial hip
