Book an appointment with a consultant

Your visit to a Spire hospital may be affected by local coronavirus restrictions. Once you've made an online booking, we'll only contact you if your appointment needs to be held virtually. If you don't hear from us, your appointment will be face to face.

Come to your appointment alone: To support social distancing and help protect our staff, patients and consultants, we’re restricting access in our hospitals except for exceptional circumstances so please come alone to your appointment.

Face masks: It is a mandatory requirement for patients to wear a mask within our hospitals unless medically exempt.

If you have any of the following symptoms, you will not be able to attend a face-to-face appointment. You should get a test and stay at home.

  • Recent onset of a new continuous cough
  • A high temperature
  • A loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

Please do not attend the hospital if you develop, or have had recent contact with anyone with the Covid symptoms listed above.

We do not offer Covid-19 testing as part of our private GP service.

Please read the latest coronavirus (COVID-19) information.

You can book appointments for yourself or for someone else using this online booking service. If you wish to book a follow up appointment, please contact the hospital to make these arrangements.

To book online and secure an appointment you will need to pay at the time of booking. Once you’ve chosen your appointment slot it will be held for 20 minutes while you complete the details needed to confirm.

We accept Mastercard and Visa credit and debit cards.

Mr Robert Clayton

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

BSc (Hons), MB ChB (Hons), FRCSEd (Tr&Orth)

Professional profile:

I took up post as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in February 2010 as the first surgeon in Fife with a major subspecialty interest in foot and ankle surgery. I perform the full range of foot and ankle surgery including ankle replacements, hindfoot deformity surgery, ligament reconstructions and arthroscopic ankle surgery using modern techniques. I carry out forefoot deformity correction using techniques which include the scarf osteotomy and minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery for bunion correction; these procedures allow rapid post-operative mobilisation without the need for plaster casting. I also perform general and specialist foot and ankle trauma surgery. I introduced the Cartiva implant to Scotland for treatment of osteoarthritis of the great toe (hallux rigidus).
