COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Clinic Appointments

Out-patient clinics at all local private hospitals have reopened for both face-to-face and on-line appointments. 

Please make appointments either with the hospital directly (see contact details at the bottom of this page) or with my PA on 020 3376 9324.

Elective Surgery

All local private hospitals have opened to elective surgery. However they remain under contract to NHS-England until at least August 31st. Under this contract they are supplying surgical space in their operating theatres. In consequence patients for private surgery are being prioritised by the hospitals for urgency, theatre availability is limited and waits may be longer than expected.

Please be aware that restrictions to protect patients and staff against COVID19 are in force at every hospital.
Prior to surgery patients will be required to self isolate for 7 to 14 days pre surgery depending on the surgery and have a negative COVID19 swab test (antigen test) within 72 hours of the procedure. You insurance company may not pay for the swab so please check. You will also be required to isolate, if necessary within a bubble, following surgery.

Consent for surgery

Please be aware that there is a small risk of contracting COVID19 after surgery. The evidence shows that risks of serious complications from COVID19, including a risk of death, rise after major surgery under general anaesthetic if contracted postoperatively. This risk will be reflected in any consent you will need to sign. Please discuss this with Mr Willson if you have any concerns. 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Symptoms and Tests

If you have;

a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, breathlessness or a loss or change in taste or smell

(Other less frequent symptoms include muscle aches, fatigue, sore throat and diarrhoea).

the UK Government recommendations are that you and your household isolate for 14 days.

You should also contact 111 and arrange a coronavirus test.

Essential workers can arrange an antigen (swab) test on line HERE.

If someone in your household is isolating then the guidance is that you should isolate too.
