Our practice

Michael East

Welcome to Michael's practice.

Women are usually referred to our Practice by their General Practitioner.

When you phone for an appointment, Linda (our Practice Secretary) will be your first point of contact.

Linda will ask for your name, address, date of birth and contact telephone numbers and will organise an appointment for you to meet with Michael.

You can find us at Level 2, Suite 3, Ascot Hospital (see map).

On the day of your consultation you will be asked to fill out a registration form.

Your consultation with Michael will take approximately 45 minutes.

 

Surgical procedures

If a surgical procedure is required then Linda will discuss the following with you:

  • The timing of the procedure.
  • Medical insurance (if appropriate). 
  • Estimate of costs involved.
  • Investigations which may be required prior to surgery.
  • What happens on the day of surgery

Michael performs all his surgery at Ascot Hospital and on the day of surgery you will be admitted by nursing staff in the pre-admission area on the ground floor of Ascot Hospital.  To find out more about Ascot Hospital and your hospital stay - click here to visit the MercyAscot website.

On the day of surgery you will be seen by Graeme Crooks, Michael's Anaesthetist. You will also be seen by a senior member of the theatre staff and the Anaesthetic Technician.

Michael will see you; make sure you have a clear understanding of the surgical procedure and sign your surgical consent form.
 
After surgery is completed Michael will phone your designated contact person to let them know how the surgery went. Approximately one hour after surgery you will be transferred to the East Wing of Ascot Hospital. 

Most women are in Hospital for 1-2 days and Michael will see you each day. On discharge from Hospital an information sheet is given to you containing post-operative instructions and contact numbers. Click to view and print the Recovery Guide.

A post-operative appointment is made for you to see Michael four weeks after surgery.
