Mr Hughes can arrange URGENT appointments for fractures or injuries. You may need further investigations (x-rays / CT / MRI / Ultrasound) and it is wise to clear this with your insurers before attending. For self-pay: costs can be provided for consultations and investigations.


The Nuffield Guildford and The Mount Alvernia Hospitals accept all major private insurance plans.

The Hospitals also offer special competitive pricing for self-pay patients for most procedures.

All new patients receive a half-hour consultation with Mr Sean Hughes to establish a care plan and order appropriate investigations if indicated.

Follow-up appointments are often shorter and involve investigation results, change of dressings or plasters, used to get further investigations organised,  or discuss treatment options.

Often an investigation or even treatment can be done promptly during the clinic hours, so be prepared to spend a little more time at the hospital.
