Private appointments are available out of hours on Saturdays from 10.30 am to 5.30 pm, and on Mondays and Fridays from 9.30 am to 8.00 pm. A private consultation needs to be booked in advance by calling Pam. Secure online consultation is also available via Skype or Apple FaceTime, as well as telephone consultation for Follow-up appointments.
Emergency consultations are not routinely available. Your local Accident and Emergency would be advisable in the event of a life-threatening emergency or otherwise see your GP first.
A GP referral prior to initial assessment is highly preferable, as well as informing your GP of any recommendations for medication and treatment. However, we appreciate that, sometimes, strict privacy, confidentiality, and discretion is required, and that private patients may not wish to share personal information with their GP.
A: Patients start to feel better after their initial face to face assessment. Medical recommendations are given about the best course of action for treatment and recovery. Further treatment sessions may be needed to treat more severe, complex or long-standing problems. Mild to moderate problems tend to need several treatment sessions, whilst more severe problems may need longer-term counselling and medication.
Private clients make payment in advance by BACS transfer, cash, cheque or credit card via PayPal.
