Mr Murray sees both privately insured patients and self-funding patients.

Insured patients:

For privately insured patients, if the patient is presenting with a new episode then a referral from a GP or other healthcare professional (eg physiotherapist) is usually required.

If you would like to see Mr Murray for a previously diagnosed issue, then sometimes your private healthcare insurance company, do not require a GP referral.

The patient can ask their GP to refer directly to Mr Murray at their preferred hospital that Mr Murray consults from.

Once a referral has been made, the patient can contact their health insurance company and they will be given an authorisation code, this usually covers an initial consultation, any required investigations (eg XRays, scans, blood tests) and a follow-up consultation.

The patient can book in to see Mr Murray in one of his available clinics, this can be done by contacting us.

Mr Murray will then see you to take a full history and examination of the condition, answer any questions that you may have, and advise on the options available for treatment.

If any further procedure or surgery is needed, this will be fully explained by Mr Murray, and a date and location, that suits the patient can be arranged.

For some procedures / operations, the patient will require a pre-operative assessment, this can often be performed at the same time as the patient’s initial or follow-up consultation to save the patient any unnecessary hospital visits. All of these services are usually covered by the patients healthcare insurance.

Following surgery, a detailed rehabilitation programme (if required) will be explained, and the patient will be booked in to see Mr Murray’s experienced hand therapist for any required aftercare, and back to see Mr Murray for a final follow up appointment.
