20 March 2020:

My NHS Trust, Northumbria NHS Foundation Trust have just implemented an emergency plan to cope with the Coronavirus outbreak. This means that I am temporarily closing down my private practice. I will be unpredictably unavailable, as I will be supporting the NHS plans. I am sorry to delay private surgery and clinic appointments. I will be able to do some telephone follow up appointments. The major insurers are allowing this to happen on a temporary basis.

Newcastle Nuffield Hospital are closing down all surgery, possibly for the next few months.

As soon as the situation changes I will update the website here.
