Some commonly asked questions about our Clinical Care, what is involved, and how we can help you.

What are the benefits over going through the NHS?

Ease of access: we give care at a location and time to suit your circumstances; we can often see referrals the same or next day and after office hours.

Full assessment: we can arrange (often immediately) a full set of investigations, including scans, such as DEXA (studies show only a fraction of patients in whom it is clinically indicated, actually get a scan on the NHS).

Full range of treatments: We offer a full range of clinical evidence-based treatments (not restricted as in the NHS). Our target is to help achieve the best outcomes for patients.

Following the consultation, the patient, GP or Referring Clinicians will receive a copy of the clinic letter.

LOC offers a holistic approach to care.
