What to expect

What to expect from your first outpatient appointment

At your first outpatient appointment, Mr Turner will take into account all information provided by your referring General Practitioner and the results of any tests or investigations performed so far. He will then ask you in detail about your current symptoms and will also ask questions about your past medical history. A list of your current medication (prescribed and over the counter) and also details of any allergies would be most valuable.

In most cases Mr Turner will then perform a physical examination before summarising his findings and recommendations. Potential options will be discussed and the benefits and side effects of any medication and procedures will be discussed in detail.

Arranging an appointment with Mr Turner

For most new patients it is necessary to be referred by your GP. There may be occasions when this is not absolutely necessary or where an appointment with Mr Turner can be arranged before your GP has had an opportunity to make a referral. 

Attending Mr Turner’s Urology Clinics

Most consultations with Mr Turner are carried out weekly at Nuffield Bournemouth Hospital on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. When you arrive at the hospital please go straight to main reception. Parking can be limited at the hospital so allow extra time to find a parking space. There are disabled parking spaces immediately outside the main entrance.

Fees

A new patient appointment is typically £220 and a follow up appointment typically £150. Tests, investigations and procedures incur additional fees.
