Please fill in the online registration form before your appointment.
Also bring in any documentation you may have. This will allow us to personalise your care pathway and avoid un-needed extra tests or investigations and give us the full picture of your health.
When appropriate we may ask you to be prepared to perform a urinary flow test when you arrive. The best way to be ready is to drink a few glasses of water to have a full bladder prior to your appointment. If in doubt ask our reception team when you arrive at the clinic if this will be necessary.
We may also ask you to fill out certain clinical questionnaires related to your health condition. You can look at these now and fill them out in preparation
In preparation and to get the best out of your appointment we need to gather as much information about you as possible. This helps us to better understand what factors are contributing to your problem and the concerns you have.
It is our goal to provide a comprehensive assessment and evaluation of your health care needs to reach a diagnosis and compile an effective treatment plan.
Please bring with you any relevant medical letters from other medical specialists, for example cardiologist, renal physician and any discharge summaries from recent stays in hospital.
Prior to your appointment with your doctor, you will need to perform a flow test so please come with a full bladder. The flow test measures how strong your urine flow is and records the amount of urine your bladder can hold. Following the flow test, your doctor may want to check the volume of urine remaining in your bladder. This is done by performing a bladder scan.
Please print and complete the attached forms and return to your Specialist's PA or bring with you to your next appointment:
