If you have tried and failed to access gastric sleeve surgery through your GP and have given up on an NHS procedure, don’t despair. You are in the same position as most people. The sleeve is a great procedure and we offer it to patients with a BMI above 35. It delivers remarkable weight loss results and delivers them quickly. It also delivers significant health benefits. See details about the gastric sleeve here.
If you don’t think you’ll be able to get a gastric sleeve in the NHS or you are unwilling to wait, and you’ll probably have to wait for 2-3 years from the time your GP refers you, then your only option is to explore a private gastric sleeve.
Of course, it would be preferable to have the NHS fund it but when you pay yourself you get to choose your surgeon, hospital, date, etc. There are other benefits too. The gastric sleeve usually costs about £10,000. Prices tend to vary according to the quality of the aftercare package and warranty provided. Patients should check very carefully what is included and be sceptical about low cost providers. With surgery, you certainly get what you pay for.
