"There are better private hospitals"

About: Bmi - The Blackheath Hospital

I was set to a Urologist by my GP with to investigate symptoms of bacterial infection and cloudy urine. After performing initial blood, urine and scans, the consultant made me do flow-rate tests and then another surgical procedure to see if there is a stricture. I had no complaints about frequent urination etc. When asked if the test was related to symptoms, they said no. And finally the consultant discharged me with no findings.

I had similar experience with dermatologist at this hospital who made me do a patch test to find if I have any allergies. But I was referred to investigate alopatia. The patch test was done just to see if i have any skin allergies.

So avoid this hospital.

My recent experience at HCA London was much better. I got world class treatment when I saw a neurologist.

Response from Bmi - The Blackheath Hospital

I am very sorry to hear about this patients experience.

I would certainly not expect any patient to undergo unnecessary investigations. I invite them to contact me directly so I can fully investigate their concerns.
