Few people over the course of a lifetime will avoid a condition that falls under our area of medical specialisation.

Whilst there are life threatening and serious illnesses that require prompt diagnosis and effective action to treat them, there are also a large number of chronic conditions that many people simply live with - at some cost to their quality of life. Many of these conditions are eminently treatable and if not always wholly curable, they can be improved to a point where life returns to normal.
