Our Philosophy

We understand that all children are different and so we always listen carefully to our patients and parents’ concerns and questions. We aim to provide clear advice that is carefully explained without jargon and helps families gain a good understanding of their child’s problem. We will lay out the treatment options available and generally try non-surgical treatments first. If surgery is needed it will be only be in a private hospital with dedicated paediatric staff and facilities. Whilst you can book directly to see Mr Bennet, its recommended to see your GP first and obtain a referral containing the relevant medical information and past medical history.

Where can my child be seen?

Our Service offers private consultations in several locations across Hampshire and Dorset. Your son or daughter can be seen by Mr Bennet at the Spire hospital in Southampton, the Nuffield hospital in Bournemouth or the new Healthshare clinic in Winchester*
*Currently, the Winchester clinic is only accepting patients over the age of 12 years old.
