About my tailored service
The first appointment is generally about half an hour and follow-up appointments 15 minutes, but this may vary with the complexity of problems. We try hard to keep to time with our appointments.
Generally consultations are held a few times a week at Lincoln BMI hospital. You can often be seen by myself within a day if it is necessary. Clinics can also be held at St. Hughes Hospital Grimsby and the Park Hospital Nottingham.
In order for you to obtain an appointment, you need to see the general practitioner who will send me a referral letter. After each visit and every procedure your GP will receive a letter keeping him or her informed about your treatment, including medication. A copy is often sent to you.
It is also possible to self refer by contacting my secretary who will be happy to make you an appointment. In this case there is no need for a letter from your GP.
Operations may be performed at the following hospitals: Lincoln BMI hospital, St. Hughes hospital, Grimsby and the Park Hospital, Nottingham.
Surgery can be arranged promptly at any of these hospitals but I am mainly based at the Lincoln BMI hospital.
The full range of diagnostic testing is available to you, including CT scanning, MRI imaging, audiology and balance testing etc. Hearing aids can be fitted privately.
On the first visit your treatment costs will be outlined (see below) and if you have medical insurance, the level of cover your policy provides will be clarified. All fees are charged in line with major insurance companies. There is a charge made for any diagnostic investigations or procedures if these are performed. If you do not have medical insurance we will make sure that at each stage of the treatment you are clear about the cost of your care. If you think that it might be difficult for you to continue paying for treatment, we would encourage you to let us know and can with the aid of your general practitioner transfer your care to the NHS.
First appointment £185 - 215 diagnostic tests: Pure tone audiogram £50
Follow up appointment £125 -160 Tympanogram £45-50
Procedures: Ear micro-suction £107 -129
