Notes to editor

Services offered at the centre include: 

Muscle, bone and joint treatment
The musculoskeletal team offers consultations, diagnosis and treatment for muscle, bone and joint conditions including injuries, arthritis and back or knee pain.

  • Physiotherapy and run checks - Bupa’s physiotherapists typically provide treatments such as mobilisation, manual therapy, massage and acupuncture. With run checks, the physiotherapist investigates the patient’s flexibility, strength and core stability on a treadmill and devise an individual program to condition the patient’s body for running, whether they are taking their first steps as a runner or aiming for a new personal best.
  • Musculoskeletal physicians - Patients can choose to see a physician to explore their treatment options – both non-surgical and surgical – before deciding on the treatment that’s right for them. Musculoskeletal physicians are doctors who are experts in their field, skilled in diagnosing and treating a range of muscle, joint and bone conditions from acute sprains and muscle tears to long standing joint problems, including arthritis. They use a combination of hands-on treatment, rehabilitation programmes and injections, and can refer patients for surgery if required. 

Dental treatment
The centre provides a wide range of dental care from check-ups to crowns, to cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening and orthodontics, including fixed and discreet braces.  Bupa dentists use some of the latest techniques and dental equipment, including digital X-rays that enable the dentist to diagnose problems immediately and intra-oral cameras that can help to improve patients’ understanding of any dental problems they may have.

Health assessments
Bupa’s range of health assessments can help patients understand their health and identify any future health risks. As well as a range of clinical tests, each health assessment includes time to speak to doctor about any health concerns, and practical advice on the test results, offering ways to become healthier and fitter. 

Private GP appointments
Private GP appointments are available at the centre, and appointments will often be the same or next day. The central location and choice of appointment times make visiting the GP as convenient as possible for City workers and local residents.
