You can contact me directly via email, Or write to me c/o Carly Thornton PHF, Castle Cavendish Works, Dorking Road, Nottingham NG7 5PN to make an appointment. Again I would prefer you to get a referral letter from your GP, this is essential if you have health insurance and a good idea even if you do not. It is good practice to make sure your GP knows of any planned treatment and that he/she has the chance to let me know of any relevant medical conditions. For self-funded patients I am happy to provide estimates for the cost of treatment in advance.

P.S. If you have any comments about this web site, good or bad and especially if you have any thoughts on how I can make it better please e-mail me.
