    Do I Require a Referral?

    You do not require a GP referral. In general, it will be possible for you to have an injection at your initial visit. If Gareth feels that your injury/condition or general medical condition requires you to speak to your GP or have further investigations prior to having an injection, he will advise you of this.

    What is an Unguided Injection?

    An 'Unguided Injection' is also known as 'landmark guided injection' or 'blind injection'. It involves palpating bones and soft tissues to guide needle insertion. This has obvious safety and accuracy limitations, so there are few circumstances when we would recommend this.

    Can I Have More Than 1 Location Injected at the Same Consultation?

    Yes - It is possible to have 2 or more Ultrasound-Guided injections at the same consultation.
