As Sports and Exercise specialists our medical team are an excellent first point of contact for anyone needing help with acute or long term injuries or illnesses impacting on physical activity. or provide exercise guidance for anyone looking to increase their activity. We believe in the positive health impacts of physicial activity on both injuries and disease processes and will work with you to develop a strategy to aid recovery whilst maintaining and improving your physical fitness.

As the majority of sports injuries are best treated with a non surgical approach, our doctors can help with diagnosis and treatment and are able to carry out procedures such as injections of soft tissues and joints and dry needling. In addition our team can refer you for any further invstigations you may need such as MRI or xrays, and can expedite referrals to other health professionals such as physiotherapists, podiatrists or orthopaedic surgeons if necessary using their extensive network of local contacts. In addition to the above services, we are able to carry out pre event medicals and health screening consultations.

Blood testing is available for a number of conditions and can address issues ranging from athletic performance concerns or cardiovascular risk assessment. Please note that there will be an additional laboratory charge for the tests depending on which are requested. Please contact us in advance with the tests required for guidance on pricing and whether any period of fasting is required before the sample. The appointment includes interpretation of the results and a written report.
