The London Neurosurgery Partnership is comprised of eleven consultant neurosurgeons, with each and everyone considered a superspecialist in their chosen field. At the clinic, all manner of conditions are able to be managed and treated, from back pain to epilepsy, with patients matched to their ideal neurosurgeon and guided every step of the way with an expert team. 

How do I book an appointment with a specialist from the London Neurosurgery Partnership Clinic? 

Booking an appointment is easy. You can do this through the Top Doctors website by requesting an appointment via message or calling to make an appointment via phone or email the practice.

How can I be referred to an LNP surgeon through my private healthcare insurance?

London Neurosurgery Partnership is recognised by all the big insurance companies like Bupa, Aviva, Alliance, AXA PPP and WPA, along with many others.

Some insurance companies require a referral letter or confirmation from a referring doctor to cover the initial consultation, so it’s always important to check your level of coverage before booking an appointment.

Does London Neurosurgery Partnership accept patients without insurance?

If you choose to pay for the consultation yourself, a card pre-authorisation will be taken to secure the appointment. The payment won’t be made until after the appointment has taken place or if the appointment has been cancelled in line with their 24-hour policy.

How do I know that my appointment has been booked?

All appointments will be confirmed with a confirmation email.

What happens during my appointment?

Every appointment is tailored specifically to each individual patient, therefore every consultation will be different from person to person. Most initial appointments will cover your medical history, symptoms and potential treatment options.

At LNP, the surgeons understand that you may feel anxious during your first appointment, but rest assured, their internationally-recognised surgeons offer an unparalleled level of care and will take the time to explain everything to you, including any possible examinations and treatments.

What should I bring with me to my appointment?

It will be very beneficial to bring along any medical history documents or scans that relate to the appointment. You can also decide to email these documents to the clinic prior to the appointment.

What happens if something worrying is discovered in my consultation?

If there is an urgent problem, scans will be performed on the same day and reports written up, so that any results will be available within a few hours after the consultation.

Our priority is always you, our patient, and our teams are well equipped to give you the best possible care and treatment. If further treatment needs to be accelerated, the clinic is prepared to admit patients immediately after consultation with priority surgery appointments that are usually offered within the week.

LNP works closely with major private hospitals like The Harley Street Clinic, London Bridge Hospital and several others which means that they are well resourced to offer you the best possible treatment and care.

The surgeons at LNP will make sure you feel important, safe, cared for and understood.
