We also have an expert team of audiologists, radiologists, speech therapists, and more on hand to ensure you get the best outcome and enjoy a seamless, rapid journey to recovery.

We treat patients of all ages, including solving common complaints in children using procedures such as tonsillectomies, inserting grommets, and removing adenoids.

Our goal is to make private healthcare accessible and affordable for all, and we have very competitively priced self-pay packages, along with payment plan options if you are coming to us direct (rather than via GP or insurance referral).

Our consultants are leaders in their field and have access to cutting-edge diagnostic equipment.

This combination of skills and facilities ensures you receive the treatment that is most appropriate in your circumstances.

That treatment could include a range of options:

  • Lifestyle: including advice on health, exercise, and habits that could be causing or exacerbating your symptoms
  • Medical: including nasal sprays, ear drops, ear sprays, tablets, ear micro-suction, or topical antibiotics
  • Surgical: common procedures include rhinoplasty, septoplasty, tonsillectomy, adenoid removal, nasal polyps, but procedures also extend to neck and head cancers

The vast majority of patients are treated with lifestyle or medical solutions.

Whatever your treatment plan, you can be assured that you will see the same consultant throughout, ensuring continuity of care

From the first moment you come to us to the moment you are discharged, we aim to make the process as speedy, convenient and reassuring as possible for you.

Referral

Your journey will start with a referral.

We accept referrals from GPs or health insurance providers, as well as from private patients who book a consultation directly.

We aim to arrange a private consultation for you within as little as 48 hours from referral or first contact, at a time that is convenient for you.

Consultation

During your initial consultation, which will last around half-an-hour, your consultant will talk with you about your specific circumstances and needs.

They will take a thorough medical history and conduct a physical exam.

At this stage, they might request further investigations, such as blood tests or a scan (usually ultrasound or MRI) of a gland.

If further investigations are needed and a diagnosis cannot be made straight away, we will organise a follow-up appointment in around a week, at a time that is convenient for you.

Following their diagnosis, your specialist will go through your results in plain English, so you are able to make an informed decision on treatment.

Treatment and after-care

As we have noted, there is a range of possible treatment paths that your consultant might suggest.

Medical treatments can be obtained in our on-site pharmacy.

If more conservative routes have been exhausted, and you need surgery, this can normally be arranged in around two weeks and will take place in one of our state-of-the-art operating theatres.

Dependent on the treatment plan you have agreed, your consultant may see you for a follow-up (or follow-ups) to check on your progress.
