    Can I have my consultation in person?

    Generally speaking, yes you can.

    Patient Consultation
    This information was correct at 10 June 2020.

    Since lockdown began we’ve been operating an online or phone consultation system. It has worked well, enabling us in many cases to diagnose conditions or at the very least to alleviate symptoms until we can book patients a face to face consultation.

    That point is now here. All our knee surgeons are now able to hold in-person consultations. They may be able to organise MRI scans and x-rays too. Because our consultants operate from several hospitals across Yorkshire – and because slightly different rules apply at each of them – not all services may be available at every location yet, although the situation is changing fast.

    To confirm the situation at your nearest hospital, please contact us.

    Before your consultation

    • Your consultant may recommend an online or phone conversation before you are asked to attend hospital. If so, you can find out more about online consultations here
    • A member of the hospital team will be in touch ahead of your face to face consultation to confirm any special measures in place at the hospital (e.g. wearing face masks)
    • It’s important to ensure you are not showing any of the symptoms of coronavirus when you visit us. If you have:
      • A new, continuous cough
      • A fever
      • Loss of taste or smell

    You should not attend your appointment. Please reschedule.

    Do I need a GP referral to see you?

    A referral is preferable although, if you are paying for your own treatment, it’s not essential. If your health insurer will be covering costs, they may insist on a GP referral letter. Find out more about appointments, fees and insurance
