New bookings suspended until further notice
I am fully booked for July 2021.
I hope to be taking on more patients in August 2021, via Hillsborough Private Clinic and the Ulster Independent Clinic.
If you need to see a different neurologist please contact clinics directly.
I am sorry that I cannot take on any more patients until August.
Please note that
a) I do not see people under the age of 16 years.
b) I do not see people with established diagnoses of Multiple Sclerosis for disease-modifying treatment as their care is co-ordinated by multi-disciplinary teams
c) I do not perform epidural blood patching procedures for Spontaneous Intracranial Hypotension
d) If transfer to NHS services is requested I cannot guarantee that you will see me personally in the NHS service.
e) If you are not a Southern HSC Trust resident you will need to be referred to your local neurology service.
f) You can request transfer to the NHS at any time, but this means you join the new patient waiting lists which remain challenging.
My fees are: New Appointment £200.00, Review Appointment £100.00. Telephone Review £50.00. Injection Procedure £50.00. Review and Injection Procedure £150.00. Please note that drug costs eg Botulinum Toxin or anti-CGRP antibody therapy are billed separately by the clinic or supplier. The reimbursements vary slightly for some insurers but I do not charge above your insurers recommended rates.
Waiting times – I will respond to an appointment request by the Wednesday or Saturday following your request. Your face to face appointment should occur within 4 weeks. Please remember that the pandemic has made things unpredictable for everyone.
Where will my appointment take place? – New appointments will take place at the Ulster Independent Clinic or Hillsborough Private Clinic. Follow up visits may take place in the consulting rooms of Northern MRI.
How to get in touch – when you request your appointment you will be able to email me. Please do not telephone the clinics directly as they will advise you to contact me via this website.
Office Hours – my office hours are Wednesday 6-8pm and Saturday 9-11pm. I can only deal with queries/emails/results during these times.
