Good morning, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today.

I am sorry to hear you are having difficulty with your knees. Steroid injections can be done via your own GP on the NHS, or alternatively some Physio providers do this privately as well as Orthopaedic surgeons.

I can assist you in providing a private provider if this is your preference?

I am very sorry that it isn't. I hope you are able to get in contact with your doctor soon to arrange this.
