You have the right to choose where you have your NHS treatment.

At North East London NHS Treatment Centre we offer free NHS treatments to all patients. You are not required to pay if you are an NHS patient and have been referred for treatment by your GP.


This is a term used by doctors to describe inflammation within a joint. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of joint disease. The surfaces within your joints become damaged so the joint doesn’t move as smoothly as it should. It causes joint pain and stiffness. Treatment ranges from conservative means, injections, fusion, excision or replacement. During hip or knee replacement surgery, the surgeon replaces the damaged joint surfaces with artificial parts. It can reduce pain and improve your mobility.


This is the surgical reconstruction or replacement of an arthritic joint. Hip and knee replacements are the most common major orthopaedic procedures. The goals are to restore function and relieve pain.

Hip replacement

A hip replacement, or repeat hip replacement, involves replacing a patient’s artificial hip joint if it has become loose, infected or worn out.
