Stepney doctors included in guide to Britain’s best medical experts

Thirteen consultants at BMI The London Independent Hospital in Stepney Green have been included in a guide to Britain’s 250 best doctors.

A panel made up of consultants and GPs selected the physicians for the fourth edition of the Doctors Guide, a supplement produced by Tatler magazine to recognise the most respected medical experts in the UK.

Editor Jessie Hewitson said the panel was asked who they’d choose to treat their own families, and added the guide covers 34 categories, from allergies to vascular surgery.

Consultant cardiologist Dr Charles Knight, who is based at the hospital in Beaumont Square and was among those selected for the guide, said: “My colleagues and I are very flattered by this recognition. It is not often that one gets such a prestigious pat on the back for the hard work we have all put in to our respective fields throughout our careers.”
