Remote Consultations

Mr Hunt has now resumed face-to-face consultations and has regular clinics at Equinox House, Clifton Park, York. He is also offering all patients remote consultations via video or telephone, for both new and follow up consultations.

Whether you have a sports injury or an ongoing orthopaedic condition, a remote consultation can be very helpful. It is possible to reach an accurate diagnosis and plan the best treatment going forward from the comfort of your own home. Many patients do not require surgery and non-surgical treatment options including online physiotherapy tailored to your condition, an exercise programme at home and other treatments can be started. If surgery is required, patients can be prioritised for surgical procedures once surgery can be resumed.

To book an appointment, please e-mail Charissa Sullivan on hunt@fortius.com or telephone her on 07724 909414.
