FAQ

Below you will find answers to some of the questions we are asked most frequently. We have not included questions about specific procedures, since we feel this is best done during a face-to-face consultation where the patient¡¯s needs can be fully considered.

Why should I consider private treatment?

The appointments and treatment are arranged with minimal delay. A team of experienced and caring health professionals will look you after. As an in-patient, you will have your own private room with en-suite facilities, on a clean ward.

What happens at my first visit?

You will be fully assessed and any necessary investigations arranged. We endeavour to carry out all the tests at the time of your first visit and will inform you of the results as soon as possible.

How is my surgery planned?

After your initial consultation and investigations, you will be advised regarding the various options available to you. If surgery is advised, we can book a convenient date for you. Normally, a pre-operative assessment is carried out by the hospital at the same visit, to make sure the whole process runs smoothly and to address any anaesthetic issues. Generally, you are admitted on the day of surgery. On admission, the Consultant Anaesthetist will see you and will discuss any last minute queries you may have. Most patients are discharged home the same day.

What happens after surgery?

Before you leave the hospital you will be given specific instructions regarding aftercare. We urge you to follow these instructions very carefully. Should you have any queries, please ask our hospital staff.

What are the risks of Surgery?

Specific risks will be discussed with you during your consultation. The GIH ENT Team would like to reassure all of their patients that these risks are uncommon and extreme care is taken to avoid them.

How much time do I need off work?

Generally, we advise two weeks off work following routine surgery. However, in some instances, this is shorter and in others it may be longer. The hospital will provide you with a sick certificate before being discharged.
