Choose and Book patients:

It is possible to be referred to Mr McKenna's clinic as an NHS Choose and Book patient. If your GP suggests referral to a spinal surgeon as an NHS patient, it is possible for them to arrange for you to be seen at Circle Hospital. As a Choose and Book patient, you will be seen by Ms O'Connor who will be acting under the instruction and direct supervision of Mr McKenna. If Ms O'Connor and Mr McKenna do not think that it is necessary for Mr McKenna to see you personally on the first visitation, he will see you subsequently, either before intervention or after investigation.
This provides a fully Consultant led service with all operations and interventions being performed by the Consultant. You will not have an intervention performed by a junior doctor or non-consultant grade doctor in this service.
