The unpredictable nature of Dr Burton’s practice can make this difficult. If you can’t attend a phone call would be appreciated so we can offer an appointment to someone else.

Who will be my anaesthetist?

We have a very experienced anaestethic team that we work with. Often they want us to do extra tests before an anaestethic which we will organise. If you are having an epidural there is a roster of very dedicated anaesthetists. The anaesthetist will charge a separate fee.
