Harley Street is no longer accepting appointments through private health insurance; self-funding only.

A patient attending for an appointment will be asked to provide a fresh urine sample on site and will receive an email, copying the GP, from Professor Malone-Lee’s team around 24 hours afterwards with the results of the microscopy and any treatment recommendations, as well as any necessary medication changes. Private patients cannot drop samples in for analysis. A prior appointment must be arranged, and the sample must be fresh.

  • NHS LUTS Clinic 

Dr Rajvinder Khasriya

In order to be referred to this service, an NHS consultant must fill out the appropriate referral form and send it back to the email address below. They do not accept self, GP or private referrals.

 

Appointment Co-ordinator and Clinic Receptionist: Caitlin

 

Telephone: 020 3288 3898

Email for Booking: lutscommunityadmin.whitthealth@nhs.net

 

The NHS clinic is located at the Whittington Hospital, Magdala Avenue, London, N19 5NF. The clinic is at 4C Outpatients and is clearly signposted.

Your first appointment will be an onsite urine analysis. The urine sample needs to be fresh, i.e. no more than two hours old, so it can be looked at immediately, as a delay in examination can affect the accuracy of results.

 

The tests are different to standard NHS urine testing so a sample at your local clinic would not be appropriate.

 

Following the urine analysis, they will organise a telephone appointment to discuss the next steps and treatment. Patients are expected to travel to the clinic to provide the sample, regardless of their location in the country. Occasionally, they can offer a telephone appointment without urine analysis, although clinicians will not be able to make significant changes to your treatment.

 

Treatment is reviewed every 12 weeks although a follow-up may be booked sooner to see if you are responding to the regime.
