GP and Steroid Injections

Dr James Cave – He/Him

James is a senior general practitioner with over 30 years experience. He has a wealth of experience in all aspects of medicine including Cardiovascular disease (particularly the management of cholesterol and blood pressure), Respiratory diseases, Endocrine, ENT, Musculoskeletal and Rheumatology.

His work as Editor-in-Chief of the medical journal Drug & Therapeutics Bulletin means he has significant expertise in understanding the pros and cons of drugs and enjoys working with patients to understand what might be best for them rather than satisfying a target set elsewhere.

He has a particular interest in the care of the elderly and does off a visiting service. He believes passionately in personal care and understands how difficult it has become for people to see their GP. Whether you have a new problem, or would like time to really talk through an ongoing issue, or just get a second opinion James will be delighted to help.

In addition to general consultations he offers soft-tissue and joint injections for such problems as frozen shoulders, arthritis, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, Morton’s neuroma and trigger finger.

In 2009 James was honoured with an OBE for services to medicine.
