Gilmore’s Groin & Hernia Clinic FAQ

We have a specialist consultant available every weekday, so it can usually be within 24 hours of requesting your appointment.  In some cases, you may be able to have your appointment scheduled for the same day. This of course depends on availability. ​​​​​​​

You are free to book an appointment with any of our groin & hernia specialists, led by our surgical director – Mr Simon Marsh.

If you wish to see a specific consultant, please mention their name when booking. This, however, may lead to a small delay in your initial appointment.

The costs range from £250 for initial consultation to £350 for a second opinion and £180 to £225 for follow-up consultations.  There are additional charges for any investigations or diagnostic tests. More information.

After your consultant has made their diagnosis and if surgery is required, they will discuss this with you. With your consent our team will help schedule this in within a week of the decision being made, however, in some cases it can be quicker.

If surgery is not required, your consultant will explain to you any follow-up treatment that may be required.
