FAQs

How do I make an appointment?

Please use the contact page on this website to contact our Practice Manager, Harriet Christian, who will be able to discuss making an appointment for you.

How much is an appointment?

We are recognised by all major private insurers.  We are also able to offer appointments for self pay at a cost of £250 for an initial consultation and £180 for follow up consultations.  The cost of additional treatments are available upon request.

How is sports medicine different from physiotherapy?

Consultants in Sport and Exercise Medicine are medically qualified. This means that they are able to make medical assessments which take the injury in the context of the overall medical condition of the patient. In addition sports physicians have access to and are able to perform medical investigations and medical procedures. We work very closely with physiotherapy to use the combined expertise of both disciplines to the maximal advantage of individual patients.

When and where are clinics held?

OxSEM run routine clinics throughout the week.  

Dr Jones and Dr Newton run their clinics at The Manor Hospital, Headington and Dr Speers runs his clinic at The Cherwell Hospital, Banbury and the Priory Medical Practice in Warwick.  

Do you offer virtual appointments?

OxSEM is pleased to be able to offer a mix of virtual, telephone and face to face appointments.  Whilst we would always prefer to see people in person, we recognise there are instances where this may not be possible and are skilled in virtual and phone consultations. 

Are your appointments Covid Safe?

OxSEM Consultants will only practice at CQC certified hospitals, all of which have Covid safe policies in place which are stringently adhered to.
