Most patients engage with their clinical professional in a few distinct stages. Here's what to expect.
Will last approximately 30 minutes, Nick will ask you about your condition and examine you. He may recommend further diagnostic tests be undertaken or for some conditions surgery may be recommended.
For private patients, this consultation is payable.
Booking Surgery (if required)
If surgery is recommended you will be offered a convenient date for the procedure.
There may be certain things you need to do, such as avoid food or drink. While many of Nick's procedures are 'daycase' (you arrive and leave the hospital the same day), we can advise on what to bring with you if an overnight stay is required.
For some operations it may be necessary for you to attend the Spire Tunbridge Wells Hospital a few days before the planned procedure for routine blood tests and to see the Pre-assessment Nurse.
Post Surgery Recovery
After the operation, you'll recieve instructions to follow to minimise risk as you return to full health. There may also be follow-up appointments to be booked.
We will already have advised whether your insurance covers your procedure and to what extent. An invoice will be issued after the procedure.
