Janet Nichols  Secretarial/PA Services  

I have been a medical secretary for many years first working within the NHS, in hospitals, health centres, nursing homes and after  taking a few years out to bring up my family I returned firstly to retail, and then to estate agency, but soon returning to the medical profession where I opted to work within the private sector.


I have worked in many specialties but now concentrate on Ophthalmics and am Secretary/PA to to Mr Andrew J Morrell and Mr Timothy R Dabbs, Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeons who both work from the Spire Leeds Hospital, and are consultants at St James Hospital, Leeds.  Both are recognised by all the Insurance Companies, and their consultation and surgical fees are in line with each individual company's guidelines.


We liaise with local and national general practitoners and optometrists, and see many patients on a private basis who wish to make use of their medical insurance, or who wish to self-fund, whether this be for their full and continuous care, or maybe just an initial consultation/examination and advice with, or without, onward referral if needed to the NHS eye clinics at St James's Hospital.


I have gone into their history and specialties in the following page and of course please do contact me at any stage should  you just wish preliminary advice regarding referral, planned surgery, dates and times and I will try to help in any way I can.  Regarding appointments I will try and fit these around your own schedule as much as possible, and if you would like ideas regarding prices for appointments and/or surgery then again please just get in contact.


I am able to provide information leaflets on a variety of ophthalmics conditions and surgical procedures, and I have listed some of those available on the "Information Leaflets" page.  


Just jot down on the contact form which you would like and I will either email, or post these to you promptly.
