Reliable pain relief. Joint pain is a very common problem and can have many possible causes but is often the result of an injury or arthritis.
We know that joint pain can have a huge effect on your quality of life and that depending on where the joint pain is, can limit your ability to do certain tasks that may be a large part of your life.
We help people to rediscover free movement with private joint injections.
Experts can administer Corticosteroid injections to relieve the pain you experience in joints across your body. The fast-acting steroids alleviate pain within hours and allow relief for up to a week and our long-acting steroids can relieve pain for many months.
Our experts can help you with pain in the following joints:
Adults of any age can benefit from receiving steroid joint injections, the effective targeting of pain leads to greater freedom of movement in the joint, and can also help with physiotherapy.
Common problems which can be improved with injections are plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel and tennis elbow, as well as many others such as arthritis.
Following your initial consultation in which our expert will examine the affected area, steroid injections will be administered in the desired joint.
During this procedure, a local anaesthetic will be used. You will leave on the same day and begin to feel a reduction of pain within hours depending on the steroid used.
It’s easy to book your steroid injections with our GP, choose to fill in the contact form, email your enquiry [email protected] or call our reception team on 0333 9000 010.

Although Summerfield Healthcare is a private practice our fees are low cost and structured with you in mind. Initial consultation fees are listed below:
Due to the recently announced lockdown in England, Summerfield Healthcare is currently only able to offer a limited number of clinical services including:
For some services we continue to offer such as health checks and minor surgery we are now providing COVID-19 testing for all patients and Doctors. This is mandatory due to the proximity of the practitioner, the duration of the appointment and multiple clinicians also being involved in your treatment. An additional £10 will be included in the appointment fee at the point of payment to cover the cost of COVID testing, and your booking confirmation will reflect this requirement. This is not required for blood testing due to the short duration of appointments and reduced risk of exposure.
If you cannot find the service you are looking for or it is not available to book due to the lockdown, please enter your details below and the service you require and we will contact you when the service resumes. Please remember that all COVID testing services are continuing during lockdown.
