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. Often neurology patients are also referred from other specialists.
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.
We have a chaperone service available, should you want it.
Having taken a comprehensive medical, family, and social history, and conducted a physical examination, your consultant may well request a test, such as a mammography or ultrasound.
Often these tests allow our specialists to reassure their patient that there is nothing to worry about.
If these investigations throw up further questions, then a consultant might request an MRI or CT scan, or tissue biopsy.
If such 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.
Once they have made 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 detailed above, there is a range of possible treatment paths that your consultant might suggest.
Medical treatments can be obtained at our on-site pharmacy.
If you need surgery during your treatment, this can normally be arranged in around two weeks and will take place in one of our state-of-the-art operating theatres.
Many procedures are day cases (so you will be in and out of the hospital the same day), while others may require an overnight stay.
Dependent on the nature of your treatment program, your consultant will likely see you for a follow-up, or follow-ups, to monitor your progress.
