Expert team

We have a dedicated team of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals on hand 24 hours a day, led by expert consultants. Together they form a multidisciplinary team (MDT). This team meets regularly to review each patient’s care plan; this tailored plan will be regularly revised to meet your individual medical and holistic needs.

Your named consultant is in charge of your care and any decisions about your treatment plan. They will visit you at regular intervals while you are an inpatient; depending on your treatment, other members of the team who are involved in your care may join them. Your outpatient consultations will always be with your named consultant.
