WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
With back pain disorders becoming epidemic in the UK many people are caught in a spiral of pain killers, GP and therapist visits often with limited access to up to date information on the full range of diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical interventions available for back pain and related disorders.
Our service was established in 2008 by a team of clinicians specialising in spinal care with experience wthin the NHS and private clinics. We offer information and one to one support wherever you might be in the UK (and beyond).
We have a truly independent and unbiased viewpoint. We are not limited to only providing information on services falling within a certain budget (as can be the case in the NHS), or which are only offered by a particular private hospital group.
TELEPHONE ADVICE SERVICE
Our fees are £55 for an initial telephone consultation lasting up to 45 minutes,
follow up calls are charged at £35 for 20 mins.
Additional fees may apply for additional services such as reports and referral letters (these will be fully explained as appropriate).
WE BELIEVE OUR TELEPHONE ADVICE SERVICE IS SECOND TO NONE, EXPERIENCE SHOWS THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF OUR CALLERS RECEIVE INFORMATION AND ADVICE WHICH HAS NOT PREVIOUSLY BEEN OFFERED TO THEM.
What to do next: Please call 0845 468 7246. When we receive your call a brief assessment will be made, free of charge by our secretary to see whether or not our clinicians will be able to offer you useful information. If your enquiry is inappropriate no fee will be incurred.
If your call is something we are likely to be able to help with, a telephone consultation will be scheduled, you will be asked to secure the booking via payment over the telephone using your credit or debit card details. Your contact details with then be passed on to one of our clinicians who will call you at the scheduled time.
SECOND OPINION MRI SERVICE
