We aim to provide a quality Urology Diagnostic and Outpatient Treatment Service. The cost of Urology Solutions services are competitive with both locum fees, and NHS consultant and SAS costs. Because you deal directly with clinicians, there are no expensive intermediaries. Hidden costs, such as pension contributions, are also avoided. We offer the possibility of using your own facility’s treatment area, so expenses such as investigation suite hire, and institutional overheads charges, which can be substantial, are minimised.
Costs are based on a per-list basis for small contracts such as additional/ad hoc lists, or small waiting list initiatives. For longer term contracts we are happy to enter service level agreements. Fees depend on the length of contract and level of service required.
For emergency out-of-hours cover, there is an hourly fee. It varies for SHO, Registrar to Consultant level. If an operation is needed as a consequence of the cover work, we can do it, according to the seniority of the cover Urologist. We do not procrastinate and hand work over. Handovers are written and signed.
