Contact Mr David Whinney


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 currently able to see children on a private basis.

A GP referral is preferred but not always necessary. Please ask your GP to make a referral by letter but do ring my secretary to book your appointment whilst the letter is being sent; this will speed up the process for you.

If you wish to make an appointment and do not have a GP referral, please use the contact form to give me some detail about the reason for the consultation. I will always want to liaise with your GP following the consultation, so they are fully updated regarding your treatment.

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