Southampton residents looking for cosmetic surgery advice are set to benefit from a new dedicated role for Spire Southampton Hospital.
Advisory Nurse Georgie Collins recently joined the team after a number of years working within the cosmetic surgery industry, and she brings with her a wealth of expertise and experience.
Spire Southampton Hospital currently provides a range of cosmetic surgery and non surgical procedures, and Georgie’s new role will enhance the service already available. She offers free consultations and informal advice, can create a plan to suit individual patient’s needs, and support and guide people through the process, from booking to after care.
The hospital already hosts regular free events where consultants provide information and answer specific questions, and the appointment of an Advisory Nurse takes the service a step further for new and returning patients alike.
A key feature of the role is to improve access for patients, with regular clinics in the evening and flexible appointments to fit around busy lifestyles.
Georgie said, “I’ve been really looking forward to meeting new people and helping them get exactly what they need. Making the decision to have any kind of cosmetic surgery is a big step and it can be an emotional time. My role is to guide them through that process and support them, facilitating appointments, answering any questions and generally looking after them.
“Cosmetic procedures are becoming ever more popular and for people in the local area to have access to such a range of services on their doorstep is fantastic. Unlike some facilities, at Spire Southampton patients can get exactly what they need without the stress or cost of travelling, with a range of experts available to provide support at every stage.”
Hospital Director Jane Whitney-Smith said, “We’re delighted to welcome Georgie Collins to the hospital. She works closely with our team of cosmetic surgeons and provides a single point of contact which is very important for our patients. Her skills and expertise mean she is a real asset, and I have no doubt that she’ll make a great success of the Advisory Nurse role.”
