Your enquiry will be handled in the strictest of confidence and responded to the same or next working day. You are welcome to read our patient confidentiality policy.

After submitting this enquiry, you will receive an initial call or email as you prefer and should you proceed to an appointment you will meet with a Consultant. We will always speak to you about your referral before contacting the patient to make arrangements for assessment or treatment as required.

Funding or payment arrangements will be discussed prior to the patient’s first appointment. We accept authorised private medical insurance and all payment methods including credit cards.

Health professionals / Private individuals welcome

Health professionals or private individuals and their families are all welcome to contact us on 0203 209 7900, email [email protected] or fill in this form to request a call back from our Referrals Co-ordinator. If your enquiry if for yourself, see our Self Referral Form.

On receipt of a referral our clinicians will assess the case and service availability and respond promptly. It is possible for a patient to be retained on a Waiting List should no place be immediately available. The Waiting List operates on a priority rather than a waiting time basis.
