We offer a consultant-led service for diagnosis and treatment of a range of foot and ankle problems from bunions to ankle replacements.

Patients are able to book themselves without the need for a GP referral, with many patients opting to pay for their own treatment or use their medical insurance.

Your consultant will take a full medical history and perform a careful examination of any problem area. They may order additional tests or scans to ensure an accurate diagnosis. Medication and physiotherapy may be prescribed in the first instance.

In some cases, surgery may be recommended.

Paying for your appointment or treatment

An increasing number of patients are choosing to pay for their own treatment or use their private health insurance policies.

When you book an appointment with one of our consultants, you will receive an invoice directly from them, independent of the hospital. For any tests, diagnostic procedures or treatments, you will receive an additional invoice from the hospital. Please ask a member of hospital staff before you agree to any further treatments as they will be able to inform you of any expected fees.

For insured patients, please always discuss any appointments with your insurance provider first, they will provide you with an authorisation number for each step of the journey. If no authorisation has been given to you, there is a risk that you will be liable to pay for your treatment or procedure.

Patient testimonials

"Mr Jowett operated on my deformed hallux valgus and recovery has been straightforward. During all the consultations he inspired confidence and took time to properly describe the procedure to take place to ensure I fully understood what was involved. He encouraged questions and fully addressed these. I felt confident that his competence and experience would result in successful surgery. 'Approachable' is a further word I would use to describe my positive experience. I would strongly recommend him to others for foot and ankle surgery."

"Friendly, informative, and professional. Felt safe, well looked after, I had a bilateral correction for hallux valgus. Delighted with the whole experience. Thank you Mr Jowett"

"Mr Jowett was fantastic at breaking down all the issues with my foot into language that I could understand. He is very personable and positive and gives you realistic expectations.

Before, during and after my operations he would answer any questions to put my mind at rest. The scars where he operated were very neat and have healed superbly.

I would like to thank Mr Jowett and the team throughout my whole experience has been amazing."
