Following your initial consultation and receiving your individualised quotation, if you decide to go ahead with your treatment you can call us to book your surgical date and pay the surgical deposit of £500 through a debit or a credit card. The remaining balance should be paid 10 weeks before surgery through BACS transfer only. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept card payments for this amount. Our account details can be found on your invoice.

If you have any queries regarding your invoice, please call us on from 01179 114 000 during office hours.

Pre-operative assessment appointment

A pre-operative assessment is required for all patients having surgery under general anaesthesia, local anaesthesia and/or sedation in line with NICE Guidelines. This will be a face-to-face appointment that will take approximately 1 hour but please allow up to 2 hours for this appointment.

During this appointment our nurse will assess if you are fit and well for the surgery and will thoroughly review your past medical history, hospital admissions and any current medications that you are taking.

All patients are required to undergo a blood test as part of this appointment. The number and type of tests will depend on your current health status and the treatment you are having.

This appointment is also an opportunity for you to discuss any questions you may have therefore it is always helpful if you write them down before attending your appointment.

Please ensure that you bring with you a copy of your GP summary if you have not given these to us prior to this appointment. If you are taking any medication, please bring with you a list of the medication name, dosage, and strength. Our nurse will give you some general advice on the preparations you are expected to do before you come to the hospital for your surgery, as well as any after care requirements once you leave the hospital.

You can eat, drink and take your medications as normal on the day of this appointment. It might help that you wear loose fitting clothes, or ones that are easy to separate, such as a top and a bottom, to allow for ease of any physical examination while always preserving your dignity.
