The government is urging all people to avoid any unnecessary social contact to reduce and prevent the spread of Covid-19. The health and safety of our patients & colleagues is extremely important to us and we all must take care of ourselves and each other in light of this pandemic.
Therefore, we will be offering telephone consultations to all patients, new and existing, who are self-isolating, unwell or not able to travel.

What People Say
Dan and all the team were really great and I just wanted to share that and say thank you as it probably doesn't get said that often and they all did such a great job in such a professional and comforting way - it made such a difference to a tough day.
I experienced excellent treatment on my recent visit for a Biopsy, from the nurse, the anaesthetist,and of course the Consultant. I was treated in a professional and kindly manner.
Mr Wood put my son completely at ease and he felt comfortable talking about all his symptoms. I couldn't have asked for better care for him, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mr Wood and his team.
Dan has published and edited many papers and book chapters over the years. He currently holds the title of senior editor for the Journal of Pediatric Urology.
