Preparing For Your Consultation
When arranging an appointment to see a consultant at the Queen Square Private Consulting Rooms, the private secretary will provide you with all relevant information so that you are fully prepared for your appointment. Generally, it is always useful if you could ensure that you bring the following with you to your appointment:
- Your medical insurance membership details, along with the authorisation number provided to you by your insurer. Our staff will take this information from you so that we can liaise directly with you insurer for billing purposes. If you are self funding, please make sure you bring means of payment with you on the day of your appointment.
- Your previous medical records including any relevant medical imaging. Should you have any of this in your possession, your consultant may wish to review your previous records in order to obtain a complete history. If you do not have any records yourself, but have had previous scans or appointments elsewhere, please inform the private secretary as they may be able to obtain these on your behalf.
You are welcome to have someone accompany you to your appointment, and sometimes your doctor may ask you to bring someone with you. However, we would not recommend having more than one person with you during your appointment.
If you require a translator or a British Sign Language interpreter, then please let the private secretary know at the time of booking so that they can make necessary arrangements.
Please make every effort to arrive on time for your appointment. Late arrivals will delay the rest of the clinic and we cannot guarantee that you will be seen. If you need to cancel your appointment, please give as much notice as possible, as you may be charged for the appointment if you fail to give notice.
