Your Consultation

David runs a well established private practice, where his approach is to give a warm welcome to his patients, taking great care to put them at ease during their consultation. He takes the time to ensure that the most appropriate treatment plan is selected, using his many years of experience to guide his patients whilst listening to their individual requirements.

David talks about the importance of the first consultation

What to expect

Will I see Mr Floyd at my consultation?
Yes, all consultations are carried out by Mr Floyd personally. The only time you would be seen by one of his specialist nurses is for pre-admission testing (if necessary) or postoperative change of dressings.

How long will my appointment last?
We usually allocate 30 minutes for an initial consultation. However, please be aware that Mr Floyd does believe in giving his patients the time they need, and this sometimes results in an appointment taking a little longer than predicted.

Will I need another consultation before surgery?
In some instances a second preoperative consultation is necessary to ensure that you are fully informed of all aspects of your surgery and postoperative care, and for a final surgical plan to be made. It also gives you the chance to ask any further questions you may have prior to surgery.

Can I bring someone with me to my appointment?
Yes, you are welcome to bring a family member or friend with you into the consultation.

Do I need a referral from my GP?
If you have private medical insurance it may be necessary to have a GP referral letter under the terms of your policy. Self pay patients do not always require a GP referral letter.

Making an appointment

Where can I see Mr Floyd?
Clinics are held at Mr Floyd’s private rooms at The Consulting suite, Great Portland Street on Mondays and at the Spire Bushey Hospital on alternate Wednesday and Friday mornings. Waiting times can vary depending on Mr Floyd’s availability but please be aware that there can sometimes be a wait of 4-6 weeks for an initial consultation.

Is there a consultation fee?
Yes, you will be invoiced for your initial consultation. If you are a self pay patient you will be asked to settle your bill before you leave.

Can I claim on my medical insurance?
Mr Floyd is recognised by all major private medical insurance companies. You are advised to contact your insurance company for authorisation prior to your appointment.

How much will my surgery cost?
Following your initial consultation a detailed quote for surgical fees will be provided. Insured patients will be required to give a procedure code to their insurers, and Mr Floyd’s secretary will advise you of this along with Mr Floyd’s fee once a consultation has taken place.
