Symptoms and Tests

If you have;

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

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

UK Government recommendations state that you should isolate for 10 days and your household isolate for 14 days.

You can arrange a coronavirus test through NHS 111 or online HERE.

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

Your Treatment

England will enter a further month of lockdown on November 5th, 2020. It is unclear at present how this will affect surgical services at local private hospitals from this date. Advice will be posted here as it becomes available from NHS England and the Independent Private Healthcare Network. The following advice is current at November 2nd, 2020. 

Clinic Appointments

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

Please make appointments with the hospital directly (see contact details below) or my PA on 020 3376 9324.

Elective Surgery

Local private hospitals have opened to elective surgery. However they remain under contract to NHS-England for the foreseeable future. Under this contract private hospitals are supplying 60% of theatre time to the NHS. In consequence patients for private surgery are being prioritised by the hospitals for urgency, theatre availability is limited and waits are longer than expected. We are asking patients to be flexible on their preferred hospital and procedure dates so that we can maximise any opportunity for an operating list.

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 have a COVID19 swab test within 3 days of surgery and self isolate from the time of the swab. Your insurance company may not pay for the swab so please check. This will all be arranged by the hospital at which you have been booked for surgery.

Consent for surgery

Please be aware that despite a negative swab test there is a small risk of having COVID19 at the time of your surgery. The evidence shows that there are risks of serious complications from COVID19 after general anaesthetic under these circumstances. This risk will be reflected in any consent you will need to sign. Please discuss this with Mr Willson if you have any concerns.
