General Surgery Clinic

Mr Agwunobi and Mr Khan are Consultant General Surgeons who operate an outreach clinic from the Macclesfield Spire Regency Hospital covering hernias and colorectal areas. Although the Spire Regency is a private hospital, it is a fully commissioned NHS service with no financial cost to the patient.


  • Out patient clinics happen at Ashfields in Sandbach
  • Its a consultant led service.
  • The consultants involved also work in the Macclesfield District General Hospital (NHS) which has a very high reputation.
  • As the Spire Regency does not take acute/trauma work the chances of operations being changed or cancelled are much lower.
  • The communication from Spire Regency to your GP is excellent.


  • Distance: Currently all investigations and operations take place in Macclesfield which is around 40 minutes away by car, although there is adequate parking at the Regency Hospital.
  • Limitations: Because the Regency does not have ITU facilities, it is unable to operate on some higher risk patients with multiple co-morbidities.


You are completely free to choose any provider of general surgical services, including Leighton, Oswestry and Royal Stoke.  SandbachGPs host this clinic because we think it delivers a high quality service close to home and is right for some people.
