Our 'ask the expert' events are an opportunity for you to ask the clinicians questions about symptoms, procedures, and recovery. The consultants listed work for KIMS Hospital under practising privileges, which is the ‘license’ agreed between independent medical professionals and a private healthcare provider. Under these privileges, they are committed to work within the governance framework of our hospital, and to our hospital values.

Whilst we will endeavour to answer all questions in the video, this may not be possible if we receive a high volume, or if a question submitted is not appropriate.
