Cortisone Injections

The service is led by consultant radiologists who specialise in musculoskeletal radiology and hold substantive NHS posts where they routinely carry out this work.

We accept referrals for ultrasound-guided steroid injections by a doctor or Clinical Specialist (i.e physiotherapist/podiatrist); we also accept self-referrals by patients. In both cases, the radiologist will assess the clinical indication and necessity for an injection at the time of the ultrasound, and proceed only if deemed to be of clinical benefit.

Coronavirus (COVID 19) Update

The situation regarding COVID 19 is rapidly changing. Our priority is to keep both patients and staff safe during the pandemic. Please do not attend the clinic if:

 

·         You have traveled to the countries listed on the government website;

·         You have been in contact with someone diagnosed with the coronavirus;

·         You have flu-like symptoms, a cold or fever

 

If any of the above apply to you, please call to rearrange your appointment.

If you think you have COVID 19 do not go to your GP, pharmacy or local hospital – use the 111 coronavirus helpline
