General Surgery

The general surgery unit at South West Healthcare comprises four surgeons who together manage a broad range of surgical problems and provide emergency and elective services, including endoscopy and colonoscopy.

How to access this service

Each general surgeon practises from their own clinics, where all patients are seen and followed up, regardless of whether they have their surgery in the public or private sectors. All specialists can only be seen on referral from another doctor, who may be a general practitioner or another specialist.
