Many patients can self-refer and book online to see a consultant of their choice at a time and date to suit their lifestyles.

The hospital provides Level 1 Enhanced Care services as well as a resident medical officer (RMO) who is available 24 hours a day to ensure that patients are safe and cared for at all times. Should your care needs change following surgery or treatment, we may need to transfer you to another hospital. This will either be to an NHS or another Circle hospital. Transfers of care only take place when absolutely necessary.
