If you are an existing patient and have any questions about your treatment, please contact your consultant or their secretary directly.

For new patients that require urgent treatment or would like to be kept informed of when we can begin to accept elective admissions, please call our enquiry team on 0208 909 5114 or complete the contact form.

We want to thank you for your understanding at this time.
