Mr Whinney is currently off-work and unable to treat patients.


Please feel free to make enquires about a private consultation. Adult patients can be seen in my clinic at The Duchy Hospital but please note that The Duchy can no longer accommodate patients under 18 years old and so I am not able to see children on a private basis.

A GP referral is required. By my reviewing the letter from your GP, I can ensure that the referral is appropriate to the service I can offer, which may save you time and money. Please ask your GP to make a referral by letter or email but you can ring my secretary to register and enquire about an appointment whilst the letter is being sent; this may speed up the process for you.

Please be aware that changing from NHS sector to Private sector, and vice versa, is not encouraged and may not be possible.

Contact for Private referrals:
Phone: 01872 308522   or 0845 643 9895
(calls to 0845 numbers are charged at 5p per minute at all times plus your phone company’s access charge)
Fax: 01872 308523

For all other enquiries please use the contact form below – I will always try to respond within 24 hours




For NHS enquiries and referrals please note that the GP referral  is not sent to me personally but is first “sorted and vetted” by the Referral Management Service in Cornwall.
