Do I need a referral from my GP?

It is advisable to speak to your GP, and to request a referral to see Mr Sarela. Your GP is very important in the management of your health, and it is sensible to keep your GP involved in all healthcare decisions. But, a referral letter is not mandatory, and you can book a consultation with Mr Sarela without a referral. After the consultation, Mr Sarela will write to keep your GP fully informed of the discussion and decisions. A copy of the letter will be sent to you so that you are involved in all communications.

What should I do if I have any questions after an appointment with Mr Sarela?

We understand fully that questions can come to mind after a meeting. It is very important to clear any doubts before going ahead with a decision about treatment. Please call or e-mail. Alex Appleyard, Mr Sarela’s secretary, will be able to take care of queries of an administrative nature, such as a date or fees. If the query is medical, Mr Sarela will return your call personally as soon as possible.

Will I get personal care?

All your outpatient appointments will be with Mr Sarela personally. There will be adequate time to discuss all your queries and concerns. Mr Sarela will perform your operation and see you, as often as is needed, whilst you are in hospital. If you have any difficulty after discharge from hospital following an operation, please call the hospital and speak to a nurse on the ward where you were admitted. The nurses can call Mr Sarela directly at any time, so that there is 24-hour cover. If Mr Sarela is on holiday, another specialist consultant surgeon will take care of any problem.
