I would wholeheartedly recommend Norma as a surgeon and colleague, I have known her for many years and have met countless happy patients that she has cared for and operated on and who have received first class surgical outcomes
I am a colleague of Miss Timoney at Guy's and St. Thomas' Hospitals. We run the paediatric facial palsy service together and I can highly commend her quality, compassion and level of care.
