New and Second Opinion Consultations
The minimum charge for a new patient consultation is £350. Such consultations generally last approximately one hour but may be longer, particularly in patients coming for second opinions who have had many treatments or investigations in the past. Your case and scans may be discussed and reviewed at a multidisciplinary team meeting with other doctors and health professionals before or after the consultation.
As part of the service, Dr Wilson will formulate a case summary and an opinion on your case and proposed treatment plan for you. After the consultation, he will write to your family doctor, surgeon, oncologist and any other doctors or health care professionals involved regarding your case. Patients can have copies of correspondence and summaries on request. Should you not wish copies of such information to be sent to any related healthcare individual please discuss this with him at your consultation.
Case review without consultation
Case reviews are often requested for patients who do not wish to travel to Manchester. Dr Wilson and his team are happy to provide such as service. However, patients must realise that such a service has limitations. The patient cannot be examined or interviewed in person. Such opinions are only theoretical and should you visit Manchester, the advice could vary significantly. Dr Wilson cannot be held responsible for subsequent treatments, which a patient may pursue or receive, not under his care.
