Contact Information

To ask a question, make an enquiry or book an appointment, contact our specialist team who are available Monday – Friday 8am – 6pm. Our London Urology team have a dedicated and caring approach and will seek to find you the earliest appointment possible with the correct specialist for your needs.

 If you are self-paying you don’t need a referral from your GP. You can simply refer yourself and book an appointment.

If you have medical insurance (e.g. Bupa, Axa PPP, Aviva), you will need to contact your insurer to get authorisation for any treatment and, in most cases, you will require a referral letter from your GP.

If you do not have a GP, then we have an in-house private GP practice that you can use. Alternatively we can suggest the most appropriate course of action for you to take, given your location and individual circumstance.

Our Charity

The Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth is a charity, meaning every time you visit here for treatment you are helping someone less fortunate than yourself.

Our aim is to help care for the sick, whilst putting back profits from our world-renowned organisation to fund our on-site hospice and clinics. Our key objectives are to make sure that patients receive the support and treatment they need in an environment that is safe and secure, offering the very highest standards of care to whoever seeks it.

As a charity, we must operate on a not-for-profit basis and our assets are used for charitable purposes.

Our People

The team are experts in using the latest non-invasive techniques in treating urological disorders, in order to reduce possible side-effects for patients.
