As the NHS begins its long recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, many NHS outpatient appointments and planned operations remain cancelled or postponed and waiting lists are growing. Mr Willmott can offer outpatient consultations and surgery if required at either KIMS Hospital in Maidstone or Spire Sussex in Hastings. Appointments are usually available within a week. Both of these hospitals have comprehensive precautions in place to minimise the risk of coronavirus transmission. All staff wear masks; numbers of patients in the clinic are limited to allow social distancing; Mr Willmott has a weekly COVID test himself to ensure that he is not carrying the virus; if surgery is required, all patients are screened for coronavirus. 

If you are funding your own treatment, a GP referral is not required. An initial consultation on this basis is £200. Many medical insurers have removed the requirement for a GP referral, but if you plan to use your medical insurance, you must check this with your insurer.



Mr Willmott is recognised and approved by all major medical insurance companies, including:

  • BUPA;
  • AXA PPP;
  • Aviva;
  • Prudential Vitality;
  • WPA.


He also treats uninsured and self-paying patients. Both Spire Sussex and KIMS offer competitive fixed price packages for self-paying patients.
