We can do the leg-work of ringing the client, booking an appointment, ensuring food is with-held, helping with directions and answering any questions the owner may have in advance of coming to us. You may find it useful to direct your client to our web site. In the section for owners they will find a section called “fact sheets”. The top one is called “Joining instructions” and gives comprehensive information including directions and instructions for patient preparation.

We send a full report on the day of procedures, typically by post, email and fax. We send further reports, typically by email and fax, each time we see the patient for check ups. Detailed aftercare plans are available on this website in the fact sheet section within the section for owners.

We are very flexible, and aftercare can be either with the referring practice or with ourselves. Where aftercare is carried out at the referring practice we can use modern technology to assist with advice from a distance.
