As is expected of a healthcare institute in a world class city like London, many of our patients attend our centre from abroad. There are many things to consider when arranging an international visit, and we generally recommend the following:
We are not directly involved in applying for a visa to enter the country for medical reasons. This is something that each patient will have to arrange dependent on their own circumstances. However, the consultant who you wish to see can provide a letter confirming your appointment and this may be helpful when applying for your visa.
We strongly advise our international patients who require an interpreter to arrange this prior to their appointment. Although many of our consultants are multilingual, we do not provide an interpretation service. Many embassies will provide advice and support when arranging an interpreter.
It is important that you register for your appointment before attending our centre. This process involves filling out a short form detailing contact and relevant medical information. Please ensure that you bring any previous reports or medical images with you to your appointment.
Some of our consultants offer long distance consults via Skype. This can often be helpful if you are intending on arranging a visit for a specific procedure, but is highly dependent on the needs of the patient. If you require a long distance consultation, please contact us for advice on how this can be arranged.
