Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any additional charges for the new and novel treatments that are not available on NHS?
Currently there are no additional charges and all the invoices are made based on the treatment offered to the individual patients. Please arrange an appointment to discuss these requirements with us.
What is the current waiting time for the operative treatment?
The current waiting times are dependent on the work load in Albyn Hospital that is used by many specialities. Consultants work flexibly and we aim to offer you the first available operative slot in Albyn hospital but sometimes there can be wait for 1-2 weeks.
How frequently the follow up visits are required?
This is arranged based on individual circumstances and type of surgery performed. We arrange to see all our patients 3 weeks after surgery. Usually only one follow up appointment is required for non complicated surgery. In case of complex surgery, we will discuss this before the operation and before discharge.
