Sunshine!

Here at the Singh Surgical Partnership we are enjoying these lovely warm, sunny days. In these ever changing and unsettling times its lovely to see blue sky and sunshine. Look after yourselves physically and emotionally.

COVID 19 and Mr Singh’s Private Practice

We hope that you are staying safe and well during these ever changing times.

Mr Singh is pleased to announce that he has been able to restart his face to face outpatient clinics and his endoscopy lists at Spire Clare Park Hospital.

A significant portion of the theatre capacity at Spire Clare Park remains allocated for NHS waiting list work. However we continue to work hard with Spire Clare Park Hospital in order to book theatre time as it becomes available.

For any patient having an endoscopic or surgical procedure, the current guidance is that you will be required to have a COVID swab 72hrs prior to your procedure and advised to isolate from that point. There are no requirements to isolate post procedure. These guidelines are however constantly changing and you will be advised by the pre operative team at the hospital of the exact requirements once your booking has been made.
