How do I make an appointment?
Please use the contact page on this website to complete the new patient questionnaire. We will then be in touch to arrange an appointment with one of the team.
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 £295 for an initial consultation and £195 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.

Do you offer Injections?
Where ultrasound guided injections are deemed appropriate by your OxSEM Consultant, they will be carried out by our network of world class musculoskeletal radiologists. We will refer you on to this and they will not be administered on the day of your OxSEM appointment. This remains true for Fluoroscopic and CT guided injections.
Our Consultants are able to administer some other injections in clinic. If your OxSEM Consultant thinks this will be part of your care pathway they will discuss this with you during your appointment.
What if I need to cancel my appointment?
You may request to cancel your appointment via email. Should you be cancelling within 2 working days of the appointment please note the cancellation policy below.
Our Cancellation Policy is as follows:
We are happy to move or cancel appointments, but require 2 working days’ notice in writing via email please. Failure to attend without notice, or any appointments cancelled within 2 working days of arrival, will be charged in full.
Our objective is that all patients receive the best possible experience. If you are running late for your appointment, we will do our best to fit you in. Please be aware that late arrival may result in a shortened or cancelled appointment.
