Our Private GP Watford Clinic is run by doctor Nomy & his team, which includes both male and female clinicians.

 

Dr. Ahmed has been a trained GP for 20 years.

 

He trained in the UK, then worked in New Zealand before completing his membership of the Royal College of GPs as well as training in Emergency care, Paediatrics, Gynaecology and Psychiatry.

 

Having previously worked for the NHS in Nottingham, he moved to Dubai and practiced there for 9 years before returning to the UK so his children could complete their studies. He has further training in travel health, sexual health and aviation medicine.

 

He, therefore, has a wide level of experience, caring for all those from different cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds. The clinic in Watford serves to assist people quickly and efficiently – test results are normally back the following day. This allows people to understand and manage their health needs effectively.

You can discuss as many medical issues as you feel necessary that are causing you concern. The doctor will be fully attentive and will be trying to help identify the best care pathway to optimise your clinical care, whether that involves reassurance only, some investigations or a referral to a private specialist consultant.

 

At times our appointment slots may run over due to emergencies that arise occasionally, so you should allow enough time for metered parking if you are using one in case our own limited parking slots being full. We recommend paying for an hours worth of parking if using on-street meters.

 

Chaperones will be available for sensitive examinations and you are welcome to attend with as many friends or relatives as you wish. Our appointment times are not restricted and the doctor will spend as long as is necessary to take a thorough medical history and to perform a clinical examination where necessary.

 

We hope and expect that your experience at our clinic will be a positive one.

The nature of your query

 

Patient name and contact details

 

At this stage it is not mandatory for these details to be disclosed if confidentiality and discretion are an issue. However it is preferable to give us correct details whenever possible with a method of contacting you should the need arise (usually mobile telephone number or e-mail address).

 

Without your consent, your attendance to our clinic will not be disclosed to any third party including your NHS GP.

 

However our clinical team will discuss the benefits of sharing any significant findings with your NHS GP as highlighted in Good Medical Practice and the recommendations of the General Medical Council (GMC), however this will be dependent upon a two-way discussion and we will always respect each patient’s view.

Payment Process

The GP consultation fee is £50.

 

For additional services such as blood tests and scans will be supplementary and the costs of these to the laboratory or local private hospital will be discussed during the consultation.

 

Payment is due at the end of the consultation with the health professional and on the same day as being seen.

 

The clinician will discuss the cost of any additional tests or investigations fully during the consultation.

 

Private health insurance is unlikely to cover the cost of a private GP consultation in the UK, with the exception of BUPA International and International SOS, who will pre-authorise the consultation and any additional tests to a set value. Please check the policy of your private insurance provider before making your appointment. As a rule, Regent Street Clinic does not liaise with insurance providers and our fees are due on the day of treatment.

 

Should you do have private health insurance then you will be expected to claim back the costs of your medical care having been furnished with an invoiced receipt from us, itemising the services you have received.

 

Payments can be made using cash, debit cards, credit cards, BACS transfer or PayPal.

 

Personal cheques or American Express are not accepted.

 

Certain services that we offer are non-refundable and are available to view in our patient handbooks at each clinic.

 

These include:

 

All dispensed medication, including anti-malaria

 

Results for X-ray/MRI/CT/Ultrasound can take up to 5 days as we are dependent upon them being reported by the consultants at the local private hospitals.

 

Results are conveyed to you and discussed with you by the requesting doctor.

 

We encourage you to have access to your results so that a shared care management plan can be implemented.

 

Your results can be forwarded to you by e-mail, fax or hard copy. Hardware such as compact discs and x-ray films are your possessions and will be sent to you or they can be collected by you in person from the clinic.

 

Your doctor will discuss whether any further follow-up is necessary and will make arrangements by way of a further face to face consultation, telephone consultation or a referral to a hospital consultant.

 

Your clinician will make you fully aware of the care pathway recommended and whether this is going to be best accessed through the private sector or the NHS route, dependent upon a number of factors, not least the most financially acceptable model for each patient.

 

Your report will be issued highlighting the significant clinical findings, which can be discussed with other healthcare professionals if needed.
