Many independent hospitals, including those in and around Southampton and Hampshire, have been supporting the NHS during the pandemic and this time of unprecedented pressure on our health system and this has had a dramatic impact on the availability of private treatment and elective (non-emergency) surgeries.

With this in mind, and as someone who knows all too well how debilitating knee pain can be, Professor Chapman-Sheath is delighted to inform his patients that he has now obtained practicing privileges at the world-class hospital in Chelsea – The Lister.

The Lister Hospital is part of HCA Healthcare which is American owned and therefore has been able to continue to offer private healthcare during the pandemic, independent of the pressures on the NHS.

The Lister Hospital has been rated as ‘Outstanding’ by the CQC, its orthopaedic surgeons are among the most respected in their field and Professor Chapman-Sheath is thrilled to now be able to see his patients and operate on them there.

The Professor’s main practice is located at the Wessex Nuffield Hospital in Chandlers Ford, he also practices at the Spire Hospital in Southampton, and for convenience, he can still see patients for follow-up at these locations.

Patients can be reassured that patient safety is of paramount importance to The Lister Hospital and enhanced safety measures have been put in place to protect its patients from COVID-19.

To make the process as straightforward and comfortable as possible for you, The Lister Hospital can assist with all arrangements including travel, telephone pre-assessment, and overnight accommodation, should it be required for pre-assessment and tests.

We do encourage you to not delay in seeking help and advice if you have any concerns or questions.
