A sprained ankle is the most commonly occurring ankle injury. Caused when the ligaments in your ankle stretch or tear, often as the result of a sporting injury or simply a misstep, symptoms include pain, swelling, bruising and ankle instability. In many cases, rest is the only treatment necessary, but for more severe cases it is important that you see a specialist to assess the extent of the ligament damage. A variety of targeted treatments may be recommended, including immobilising the injured ankle in a plaster cast, functional rehabilitation and, as a last resort, surgery.

You don’t need medical insurance to receive treatment at one of our hospitals. Treatment from a leading specialist using the very latest technologies is more affordable than you may have thought, and our prices are very competitive. As a guide, an initial consultation to clarify your condition and discuss the best course of action could be approximately £250.
You’ll be treated by London’s number 1 private hospital group. We treat over 400,000 patients each year and this volume drives excellence and experience. Over the last ten years we’ve invested £500 million in treatments, technologies and medication, many of which are not available via smaller hospitals or on the NHS.
You can be confident that we can look after all your treatment needs. We are the only private hospital group to offer patients of all ages such an extensive range of treatments.
You won’t have to wait. Your care starts as soon as you are ready, and often we have same day or next day appointments available.
Your safety is protected. Not all private hospitals are the same. Some private hospitals don’t have any on-site critical care facilities in the event of an emergency. Our consultants have access to more critical care beds 24/7 than any other private healthcare group in the UK. If you need urgent care you’ll receive it instantly – it’s very rare for us to transfer patients to another hospital. Our MRSA infection rates are nearly five times lower than the national average. And we have zero recorded cases of some other common infections.
You’ll receive value for money. You cannot put a price on good health. While you may be able to find cheaper treatment elsewhere, you will not find a private hospital group that offers such a high level of expertise, with so many leading specialists in state-of-the-art hospitals.
