We offer weekly clinics to suit you! Our weekly clinics are Monday & Wednesday afternoons and Wednesday evenings.
Matt Barrett was the surgeon who successfully operated on my badly broken clavicle/ collar bone. He first met me in A&E and quickly assured me I was in safe hands. I was due to attend the windsurfing world championships only seven weeks away so any repairs needed to be carried out as soon as possible and with the best possible long term strength. Sure enough I had perfect service and surgery at Dorchester Hospital, was able to windsurf again within six weeks (not on Matt's advice…) and competed in the World Championships and became Grandmaster World Champion.
Massive thanks to Matt and his team for all their help and what we achieved.
