How much do the clinics cost?
If you are self-funding, we’ll request a payment of £120 in advance of the appointment for the initial consultation. A receipt will be provided upon receipt of payment.
If you have medical insurance we won’t take a payment from you prior to booking your consultation. We will invoice the insurance company after the appointment or procedure. We will require an insurance policy/membership number at the time of booking. You will need to ensure that you have authorisation for the appointment prior to attending. You will be liable for any shortfalls.
What happens at the clinics?
The appointments are typically 30 minutes for cosmetic or ‘lumps and bumps’ appointments and breast reconstruction consultations will last 1 hour. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions about the procedure you’re considering, and Mr Wilson will highlight the options you have available and make recommendations for how best to proceed.
Do you offer virtual consultations?
We offer virtual appointments for clients requiring new or follow up consultations. If you are a new patient, Mr Wilson will need to see you at least once, preferably twice, face to face prior to surgery, for an examination.
What happens after the clinic?
You will receive a clinic letter, a copy of which will be sent to your GP. This will include a quote for the procedure that has been discussed.
Patients that are happy with the quote and want to go ahead will be offered a theatre date – typically within 2-3 weeks of the initial consultation or at a date that is convenient for you, at your choice of hospital location. This is significantly affected by COVID-19 and theatre space is currently very limited.
Those with medical insurance will be provided with a code and will need to get authorisation from their insurer for the procedure.
Will I see Mr Wilson again before surgery?
Mr Wilson likes to see his patients at least twice prior to surgery to ensure they are happy with everything and to answer any remaining questions.
Mr Wilson does not charge patients that are self-funding for any additional preoperative consultations.
Can I see Mr Wilson after surgery?
Mr Wilson will want to see you after surgery and he does not charge those that are self-funding for any postoperative, follow up consultations. This will usually be at 1-2 weeks to remove any sutures and/or dressings and then again at the 6 week mark.
