Important Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update - November 2020
The unprecedented challenge of coronavirus has caused significant changes in our practices including repurposing of facilities to tackle the outbreak. The surgeons of the Brain and Spine Clinic remain committed to providing the best quality care for all of their patients despite these challenges.
The surgeons of the Brain and Spine Clinic remain contactable and can continue to provide the following services:
New and follow-up consultations, either by telephone or video in order to eliminate the risks of face-to-face consultations. Video consultations can be set up straightforwardly using a computer or smart-phone, even if you have no previous experience of such platforms.
Face-to-face consultations can be carried out on request or if we feel it is essential to your assessment.
Arrange urgent investigation and treatment if you have a condition which poses a threat to neurological function.
More routine investigations can be carried out although these may be subject to some delay.
Provide support & advice on symptom control of non-neurological threatening conditions such as spinal pain and sciatica while we await improvement in the coronavirus situation. Definitive treatment can then be arranged as soon as it is safe to do so.
Remote consultations (telephone or video) are approved by the vast majority of insurance companies, but please do check with your insurer.
We wish you all well through this uncertain time.
The Brain and Spine Clinic has been formed by four experienced consultant neurosurgeons. Together we provide expertise across the entire range of neurosurgical problems, as well as sharing a common ethos of patient-centred care.
