Important information about outpatient appointments

Spire Edinburgh Hospitals are pleased to advise that we are now accepting GP and medical referrals only for outpatient appointments. Unfortunately, at this time, we are unable to accommodate those wishing to self-refer.

When you come in for your outpatient appointment, please do not arrive more than five minutes before your appointment time. This is to minimise the number of people in our waiting areas.

On arrival, before entering either of our hospitals, you will be asked a few quick questions, have your temperature checked and given a mask which must be worn at all times while inside the hospital. Please be advised that we ask that only you attend the outpatient appointment.

Follow-up appointments, where possible, will be conducted via telephone.

Spire Edinburgh Hospitals currently has a no visitor policy.

Please note that Spire Edinburgh Hospitals no longer accepts cash.

We offer various weight loss treatments. These include operations to reduce the size of your stomach through surgery or you can swallow tiny balloons that inflate to make you feel full after a small meal.

Is weight loss surgery for you?

Being overweight or obese can have serious impact on both your physical and mental wellbeing. It can negatively affect your self-confidence and self-esteem and put you at increased risk for serious health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, cancer and heart disease. If you're still struggling to lose weight even after dieting and exercising, these types of treatments can help give you the extra boost you and your health need to help shed significant amounts of weight. We can help you choose the treatment that’s right for you, helping to give you the energy and self-confidence to enjoy a healthy life. And it's also been found that weight loss surgery really does help.
