We recommend that you see your GP to ask for a referral to see Mrs Badvie, as your GP will check your symptoms to ensure they fall within the field of general surgery, colorectal surgery and endoscopy, which Mrs Badvie specialises in.
If you would like to arrange your own consultation directly, please call Mrs Badvie’s secretary on 020 7118 0212, who will organise your appointment.
Alternatively, you can also call the hospital where you would like to be seen and ask to be booked into Mrs Badvie’s outpatient clinic.

4) I have medical insurance. What do I need to do to see Mrs Badvie?
Please call your insurance company to obtain a pre-authorisation code prior to your consultation, and discuss your policy cover, excess if applicable and any individual limitations. You will need to provide your pre-authorisation code, along with your insurance company policy number and GP details, to Mrs Badvie's secretary when you book your appointment.
Mrs Badvie works with the following insurers (national and international):
Asia Medical Assistance
AXA PPP International

If your insurer is not listed, please ask their representative to contact Mrs Badvie’s office, and she will endeavour to work with your insurance company to provide your full treatment.
5) How am I charged for services?
Invoices will be raised within 48 hours of your consultation and sent by email or post.
If you are insured and have provided pre-authorisation codes, the invoice will first be directed to your insurer. You will subsequently be invoiced for any excess or shortfall according to your individual policy.
If you are self-paying, details of how to pay by bank transfer will be provided on your invoice, which should be settled within 10 days of the invoice date. We do not have facilities to take card payments.
Please note that invoices from Mrs Badvie’s office relate to her specialist services only. Where a procedure is performed in the outpatient department, or a diagnostic test or operation is recommended, the hospital will provide you with details of their charges. You can request this information directly from the hospital.
6) I am visiting London and am seeing Mrs Badvie on the recommendation of my Embassy. How do I pay for my consultation?
In these circumstances, we will accept either cash or a cheque made payable to ‘Sara Badvie Surgery Ltd’ on the day of your consultation and you will receive a receipt before you leave the clinic.
7) What happens after my appointment?
Mrs Badvie will tailor the next step to your individual case and discuss this with you at the end of your appointment. You may require diagnostic tests or an operation may be recommended. These will be discussed with you in detail.
