Welcome to the website of Dr Peter Venn and his team!

 

 

 

CORONAVIRUS

 

We no longer offer face to face appointments in the outpatient setting in the traditional way due to risk of cross infrection from Covid-19.  However we are very much open for telephone consultations of 40 minutes (or 60 minutes for insomnia) for the standard fee as before.  

It is surprising what can be achieved by telephone; a full history can still be taken, with advice given about the best next step.  Investigations are still possible in the home environment if required.  Whilst the disadvantage is that it is not possible to examine the airway which is best medical practice, this should be possible at a later date if needed when the risk of cross infection has reduced.

 

Please email or ring us to arrange an appointment by telephone.  We are still very much open for consultations and advice can still be given - especially for sufferers from insomnia.
