No, unless this is a condition of your insurance. I would not however see a patient against the wishes of their GP.
Most diagnoses can be achieved in a single consultation. Some patients return to obtain the results of investigations such as MRI scanning, and some re-attend for treatment.
Yes, please get in touch via the Appointments page to request.
You’re welcome to be accompanied, subject to Covid-19 rules.
If you have a problem with memory or with speaking then you should be accompanied by someone who knows you well and can describe the problem.
If you have had attacks or episodes of lost or altered consciousness then a witness description is essential. This is normally better achieved face to face, than on the telephone. Written attack descriptions can be unhelpful, but a diary of attack dates can be very helpful.
You should have an idea of what you want to get out of the consultation before you attend. If you have had any tests, please bring the results with you. Scans such as MRI or CT are best provided on disc, which sometimes needs a password. Make a list of the medications you are taking, or have previously taken for the main problem. Written lists can become overworked and overlong however it is helpful to have a think about what you want to say, before you attend
