Do I need a referral letter?

It may be that you have already seen your GP or a local specialist and have a diagnosis of your condition and are looking for a suitable private surgeon. Therefore whilst it is not essential to have a referral letter from your GP, it is usually wise to request one. Firstly because it is often a requirement of your medical insurer, secondly because your GP will include information as to your general health and any other relevant medical history, and last but not least, it is always advisable that your GP is aware of any planned treatments.

Do I need prior authorisation from my medical insurer?

It is always useful to obtain a pre-authorisation number from your insurer before the day of your visit to a hospital or clinic. We work with all of the major health insurance companies and if at the time of making an appointment if you are unfamilar with the procedure, we will be happy to explain how to go about contacting your insurer.

What if I am funding my own treatment?

If you are planning to fund your own treatment and would like to obtain an estimate of costs, there is no need for a referral and I am happy to base an estimate on the information you are able to provide.

Also, overseas patients or those for whom English is not their first language may wish to have an interpreter of family member attend consulations with them. Interpreters can be provided by prior arrangement.

If in any doubt or you have questions, please contact either myself by email, or via my Secretary Carole on 07854 946 544.

I am available for consulations with NHS patients at my clinic at:

Please note that the requirements for NHS patients are slightly different in that you need to have a letter of referral from your General Practitioner to be seen as an NHS patient.

Your GP can arrange an appointment directly via the NHS choose and book system or by sending me a referral letter at the above address.
