He added: “For secondary care, our consultants are among the top doctors in the country, many have international reputations for excellence and knowledge.
“In terms of tertiary care, we offer super-specialisms such as expert consultants including the UK’s top specialist in bone scanning, Prof David Reid. We have nutritionists with expertise in sports nutrition, weight management and eating disorders. Our Emotional Wellbeing service has highly-experienced counsellors and psychotherapists to help.”
