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.
We also offer an affordable self pay option for patients who do not have health insurance, or have been told they are ineligible for NHS treatment.
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.
A bunion is a painful, often inflamed deformity of the big toe joint which usually gets worse over time. Surgical correction commonly involves further procedures rather than only removing the bony lump or the inflamed bursa; such as realignment of the metatarsal bone using metal screws or other fixation techniques.
We treat and manage patients who suffer from tendonitis of the tendoachilles, a condition which can be caused by intense physical activity, such as running and jumping. It responds to non surgical treatment. We will not treat patients who have suffered a rupture of the tendon.
Along with all Independent Sector healthcare providers, we will be supporting NHS England by providing essential support to NHS Hospitals during the Coronavirus crisis. As a result, unfortunately, we have to cancel the elective services we offer to our patients. If you have an appointment, somebody will be in touch as soon as possible to discuss. Please bear with us whilst our phone lines are extremely busy and we work through speaking to each individual patient.
