These are difficult times for everyone and it is essential we all protect ourselves and keep well. You will be safer if you follow the government advice carefully and remember advice will be frequently updated as the situation progresses.

 

I am fit and well and my office remains open. If you have concerns relating to knee, hip or sports injuries, or worries relating to already planned surgery, then please do not hesitate to make contact on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

I can perform a telephone consultation initially to evaluate your symptoms and offer advice through a booked appointment.  Wherever possible for my existing patients I will be conducting over the telephone consultations and many insurance companies have agreed to this.

 

Within just a few weeks it is anticipated that NHS services will be significantly disrupted as more patients become unwell with the coronavirus. All planned surgery in both the NHS and private sectors will cease and our skills will be utilised to treat those in most need.

 

I am unable to accurately predict when we will be able to resume normal services but anticipate it will not for at least 3 months, and my colleagues are suggesting planned work may not resume in the NHS until November/December.

 

At this time I would urge you to play safe and avoid activities that put you at risk of injury. However, if you do suffer a problem or injury I will help to manage your problem. Interventions such as braces and physiotherapy can help with symptom control and/or delay the need for surgery. If you do require surgery I will ensure you are on my waiting list ready, for when normal services resume.

 

I will continue to manage a waiting list and I will keep you updated as the situation improves.

 

Best wishes to all

Keep fit and well

Adrian Harvey
