We are an independent organisation that provides an exceptional level of service to both NHS and private patients. We believe in disease prevention, health maintenance and treatment. We provide conservative treatment options for ourpatients, promote shared decision making and if surgery is required we can offerpatients excellent surgical outcomes.
We aim to provide services that ensure patients can return to the best level of independence they can achieve and help prevent future musculoskeletal conditions through providing health and wellbeing services and information.
Our vision is to be the very best provider of healthcare services, within a therapeutic atmosphere – providing a great place to work, practise medicine and receive care.

Our principled way of delivering care and our commitment to quality truly sets us apart, enabling us to deliver excellent outcomes for our patients and services that make an impact within our community and beyond.
We make it clear from the outset that we value the importance of every employee from the first day they join us. Our employees are as important to us as our patients and we will ensure the same level of care and support is received by everyone.
We know that having an engaged, capable and motivated workforce will help us to deliver a high quality healthcare service. We are committed to developing a well-trained and flexible workforce and we support personal development for all of our employees.
