Anyone seen Private Endo?

Post by Lucie83 on Fri May 16, 2014 1:46 pm

Hi
I have an appointment on Tues @ 5:00pm with a private Endo. He wants to carry out the usual tests to check HPTH and if necessary some scans at some point. I'm just wondering if anybody has been private and how their testing works differently to NHS? It's a 45 min drive one way for me so I was wondering if he wanted bloods done, do they advise morning blood tests and are they done in the private hospital?
Thank you

They are done at the private hospital. The endo will probably not worry about time of tests. Unless it is cortisol or acth or other pit hormone testing.

I see a private endo but all my blood tests are done by the GP. I had a dexa and kidney scan done on the NHS. It is very expensive if all tests are done privately. I worked out it would be over £300 just for the blood tests but thankfully my GP did them all. Do check the costs before agreeing to tests and extra costs like taking the blood and lab fees may be on top of the basic price.

Hi
Fortunately I have private health insurance and I'm covered for consultation and tests. The consultation alone is £200

Thats a reasonable price, my first appt was £350 but I did get over 2 hours with her so can't complain.
