Private Patient Appointments

For self-paying patients, a GP referral is preferrable but not essential. For most patients who are privately insured, a GP referral is usually required therefore please check with your insurance policy before making an appointment.

 The British Spine Registry (BSR) was set up by the British Association of Spinal Surgeons to monitor all spinal procedures and collect data with the aim to improve patient safety and monitor the results of spinal surgery. This will allow better understanding of procedures and techniques in the future and therefore improve patient’s experience and quality of life.

Mr Hilton works closely with the British Association of Spinal Surgeons (BASS) and adheres to the guidelines of NHS England and National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE). He fully supports the British Spinal Registry and therefore, if you are treated by Mr Hilton, he will discuss the British Spinal Registry with you at the consultation.
