    Greater certainty over your health in a single visit

    Following a remote or face to face consultation, we aim to diagnose and treat you in a single visit to HCA UK at The Shard. We’ll coordinate your tests, assess your condition and provide medication or minor treatment on the same day (where medically possible). If your case is more complex, we’ll ensure you have an onward plan for your health that may involve further treatment - at London Bridge Hospital or nearer to home.

    In short, you’ll benefit from the most knowledgeable specialist opinion, with the least inconvenience, in the safest of environments.

    To keep our spaces safe, we’re asking people to come to HCA UK at The Shard unaccompanied. However, if you need assistance on your visit, carers can be allowed if you prearrange this with our concierge, or your consultant’s secretary. Our nurses will be here to support you at all times during your visit.

    Please be aware that while your diagnosis may start at HCA UK at The Shard, you may have to visit other departments such as endoscopy or cardiology, which are a few minutes away from the centre. So allow for some time if needed.

     HCA UK at The Shard is home to our on-site pharmacy. Should you need any medication, your doctor will provide you with a private prescription that you can pick up before you leave.

    Our clinical pharmacists can also offer pharmaceutical advice and provide information on a range of other health issues including drug information.

    If you’re insured, you’ll need a referral from your GP to authorise paying for consultations, diagnostics and subsequent treatment. But you don’t need health insurance to be seen quickly.
