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.
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.
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.
