Here at the MSG, we are able to offer a variety of cosmetic surgery procedures on-island.
Mr Fysh can provide a full range of cosmetic breast surgery packages, including breast augmentation, reduction, uplift and revision surgery. He can offer impartial advice and second opinions with regard to cosmetic breast surgery and has strong links with other specialists in the UK. Mr Fysh and Mr Vowles both offer cosmetic skin surgery and removal of ‘lumps and bumps’ under general and local anaesthetic, while Dr Chandler can advise on and carry out non-surgical cosmetic procedures such as Botox and collagen injections.
Mr Vowles also carries out surgery to correct ‘bat-ears’. Mr Blundell is able to provide upper lid blepharoplasty and cosmetic skin surgery around the eye.
Our partners at Ramsay Healthcare carry out regular clinics at the MSG for cosmetic procedures which we are not able to offer here in Guernsey. Please call the MSG on 01481 238565 for details or to make an appointment.
UK provider Wessex Fertility Limited holds a clinic at the MSG once a month for people choosing to use their services.
Excessive sweating can be uncomfortable and embarrassing, but the Medical Specialist Group offers a range of treatments that can provide a solution. Other local providers (health clinics and beauty salons) offer injections with Botox or Dysport, but Medical Specialist Group consultant surgeon, Mr Michael Van den Bossche, uses unique techniques that are faster and more effective.

Varicose Vein Treatment
The traditional method of ‘vein stripping’ is available under the States Contract, but requires a general anaesthetic and can involve pain and bruising that results in a lengthy recovery period. The Medical Specialist Group offers a state-of-the-art modern technique called Venefit ™, which involves less pain and bruising and enables the patient to be active again much more quickly.
Medical Specialist Group consultant surgeon, Mr Sadeo Kairsingh, has undertaken training in the Venefit method and has helped many islanders taking up this service.

Specialist Baby Clinic
Babies are checked routinely by a GP within 48 hours of the birth, to ensure that the baby is physically well and has no congenital problems. The Medical Specialist Group offers parents the option of a further and more thorough health check for their baby at any time during the first 3 month, giving the opportunity to discuss any feeding, sleep, developmental or other concerns.
This can enable earlier and more effective management of any underlying conditions that it uncovers, or can provide a greater level of reassurance for parents that all is well.
The Special Baby Clinic is run by consultant paediatrician, Dr Sandie Bohin, who has over 25 years experience dealing with infants and their problems.

Medicolegal Report Service
The Medical Specialist Group, based in Guernsey in the Channel Islands, is a partnership of 40 Consultants all of whom are on the Specialist Register of the General Medical Council.
We have a contract with the government of Guernsey to provide a high quality secondary healthcare service for the residents of Guernsey, Alderney and Herm.
In addition to that contract, we offer various private services including a medicolegal report service, with highly qualified and experienced medical and surgical consultants providing expert reports across a range of specialties.
Along with written reports, medicolegal services may involve conferences with legal professionals and attending court as an expert witness which can also be undertaken by our consultants.
While Guernsey is part of the British Isles, it is not part of the United Kingdom and so VAT is not applicable on services provided from the island; this means we are able to offer our medicolegal report service at a very competitive rate.
For more information or to request a medicolegal report, please contact Michaela Le Flock at the Medical Specialist Group telephone 01481 238565 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Executive Health Screening
The Medical Specialist Group launched an Executive Health Screening service in May 2016 and we have been pleased with the take-up from some of the Bailiwick’s leading companies.
In May 2017 we reviewed the product, taking into account feedback received from clients and also from Rossborough Healthcare. As a result we have improved the EHS service by including greater specialist analysis of test results and also by adding the option of a personal wellbeing and lifestyle assessment.
This means that local companies can now take advantage of on-island health-check provision for their staff which is equivalent to the leading products available in the UK and at comparable cost, but without incurring the travel costs and time away from the office that are involved with off-island health-checks.
The MSG’s Executive Health Screening service now offers a silver package which comprises an appointment with a nurse for standard health checks and an appointment with an MSG consultant for an advanced examination, while a gold package adds the personal wellbeing and lifestyle assessment.
The strap-line for our EHS service is ‘Your people are your business’ and that is so true because the productivity and profitability of any organisation can be adversely affected if it does not have a fit and healthy workforce.
Our package is therefore a sound investment which will check that all is well with your employees’ health and wellbeing, provide early detection if that is not the case and also provide advice on lifestyle changes which can help to maintain good health and wellbeing in the years ahead.
The EHS service is not limited to corporate clients and is also available to self-referring individuals.
