Expert diagnosis and management of multiple and complex medical conditions
Many of the people who visit our General Physician at BMI Bishops Wood Hospital in Northwood, Middlesex have one or more complicated health problems that are not being successfully managed with their current treatment plan.
Others may have been referred to us by another consultant or their GP, who is struggling to determine the precise cause (or causes) of their symptoms.
The highly experienced Consultants working here would be delighted to meet with you and to help you to get the support you need.
Modern medicine involves many different specialities, such as orthopaedics, cardiology, neurology, rheumatology, and dermatology. This can be helpful if you have a specific problem, as it means you can get the help you need from the most qualified and appropriate specialist.
However, if you have overlapping symptoms, with multiple possible causes, you will often benefit from a Consultant Physician overseeing, arranging, and coordinating any investigations and treatments.
Common reasons people visit our Consultant Physician for help include:
This is just a partial list of symptoms, which shows just how broad a field General Medicine is!
A private General Medicine appointment can help you get clarity about the best approach to take going forward to treat your symptoms and improve your health. Our Consultants are experts in managing multiple complex conditions and will help determine what investigations you may need, and the order they should be done in.
Taking a holistic approach, they will work closely with your GP, social worker, family members, and anyone who is involved in looking after you, to make sure you have the support you need at every stage.
On-site at BMI Bishops Wood Hospital, we offer fast access to a number of medical specialities, including:
Your Consultant can arrange investigation and treatment from any of these specialities and others, including dieticians, speech and language therapists and physiotherapists, where required.
A number of conditions seen by a General Physician will often involve ongoing review of treatment, rather than a one-time “fix”. Treatment for multiple or complex conditions will often benefit most from shared decision making.
For this reason, it can be helpful to have another person come with you to your appointment. This may be a husband, wife, partner, family member, or close friend. They can help make sure you don’t forget to mention any symptoms or concerns and will often remember things said by your Consultant that you may have missed.
Having discussed your symptoms, your Consultant will carry out a physical examination. They may also carry out tests to measure your memory.
They will then discuss the next steps with you. This may involve adjusting your current treatment (e.g. changing dose, frequency or the medication used) or referring you for further investigations.
Common investigations include:
While many of these can be carried out on-site, some may be arranged at another site.
Once any results are back, your Consultant will talk through them with you and discuss their recommended treatment plan. If you have any questions or concerns, they will be very happy to explore these with you.
When you choose BMI Bishops Wood Hospital, you will benefit from:
