Talking to your GP is often the first route to choosing a Consultant, and they will be able to advise you. If you wish to choose a Consultant yourself, this is also possible. You can either get a recommendation from friends and family or use our Consultant search to view profiles of Consultants working at HMT Sancta Maria Hospital. For most treatments, you’ll need a GP referral letter prior to your first appointment.

Check their qualifications and experience

Your consultant will be suitably qualified and publish their number of procedures on the Private Healthcare Information Network (PHIN). You can also look into any training or continued professional development they have completed. How many operations have they carried out?

Checking expert and patient reviews

For example, surgeons will be members of the Royal College of Surgeons. You can check the register of each of these organisations online or use MyNHS.

Check their reputation

You can search online or ask around to see what reputation a specific consultant or surgeon has. Talk to friends, family, any doctors or nurses that you know, or ask your GP what they thinks of your chosen consultant.
