We will assist patients to create a bespoke package tailored around their needs. You may have a diagnosis from your doctor, a referral from an insurer or come directly to us. We assess patients within 24 hours (and often on the same day):

  1. by telephone or videoconference (Skype, Apple Facetime and WebEx);
  2. in person at our assessment centres in central London, Reading, Bedford,
    Nottingham or Bath;
  3. as an inpatient at a Circle hospital.

Before you arrive, we will prepare to cater to any precise dietary requirements, while also assisting with booking accommodation and transport, and translation services if required.
