“not just nice, but brilliant!”

“After 4 years of various doctors talking to me about having hypermobility or a stomach ulcer or anxiety-caused spasms, not only did you actually fix me (I repeat, a hero”!) but you were so lovely and explained things to me like you actually cared.”

Mrs. Anon, 22 Yrs, Gallbladder Removal


Here are some of the most common questions we are asked. 

If you have any questions or queries or want to make an appointment, please click the button below to contact us. 

When can I return to work and the gym after surgery?

Normally after hernia or gallbladder surgery patients will need ONE week off driving a car. Generally most patients can get back to work about the same time . Contact sports, heavy lifting and going to the gym will need about a 4 week break.

Do you treat NHS patients in the private hospitals?

Yes we do. All NHS patients are entitled by law to be treated in a hospital of their choice. Under the NHS choose and book scheme an NHS public patient can have access to treatment free of charge at our private hospitals . They are restricted to the 18 week government targets but they will be seen much quicker than any other NHS hospital in the area. This service is only available by contacting your GP as they are required to initiate the referral to me.

Are there any risks with COVID?

Mr Brennan has been fully vaccinated including booster against COVID so the risk is minimal. Mr Brennan is practically immune as he contracted COVID himself at the start of the pandemic while performing lifesaving emergency surgery for the NHS. He has fully recovered. All our Private hospitals are COVID free and all patients are screened prior to admission.

Are there any complications?

In my hands very rarely but I do get them occasionally.
Generally bleeding , wound infection and nerve damage can occur but this is less than 1% of cases.

How much will it cost?

Mr Brennan sees private patients from all the major insurers eg BUPA , AXA , Aviva, Vitaility, Health online , Cigna. Patients can also self refer and pay for treatment themselves . With these methods there is NO waiting list and these patients can be seen within 48 hours or less and operated on usually within 2 weeks.

BMI hospitals have self pay packages available with no hidden charges. A hospital credit card facility is also available where patients can pay for their treatment and then repay in instalments.
