Your GP will identify that there is a treatment needed.
Either you or your GP will get in touch with Surgery Now for support with the process of getting your treatment abroad.
Once you are happy to work with us, you will pay a small refundable deposit.
We will send your information pack to get things started and if you need financing we will help you make your application to the Credit Union.
We will match your treatment to the appropriate surgeon in one of our partner hospitals.
Your GP will organise for you to have some diagnostic tests e.g. swabs, ECG, blood tests, x-ray etc…before travelling.
We will liaise with the chosen hospital to get your surgery dates arranged and send your files to them for review.
Once the date is confirmed we can arrange your travel, accommodation and transfers to and from the airport.
You are now ready to travel. Once you arrive at the hospital you will have an out-patient appointment with your consultant the day before you receive your treatment.
On discharge, you will receive paperwork and an aftercare plan. Included in the paperwork is your refund application from the HSE. We will help you fill in the paperwork correctly in order for you to receive your refund in a timely manner.
Once you have returned home, we will help you complete your application and you should have your refund between three to six months of applying.
Surgery Now will help you with the management of your aftercare plan and we will liaise with your Consultant abroad and local GP as required. Your GP will receive a full report from the hospital regarding the treatment you received so he/she can update your local medical records.
