If you have any questions regarding the different scans Dr Penman provides, please contact Helen, Dr Penman’s secretary, on tel: 07801 562263. Please note: Helen does not keep Dr Penman’s appointment diaries so will not be able to make an appointment for you. 


Due to an increasing workload, Dr Penman now runs an additional gynaecology clinic at the Spire Alexandra Hospital on Mondays from 9-12 am and also additional operating times on alternate Wednesday afternoons.


These sessions are in addition to his weekly and Saturday morning clinics.
