(Nuffield Hospital Appointments)

Apart from these clinics, Dr Vellayan would hold ad hoc clinics, depending on clinical urgency, if required. It would be best if you can get a GP referral. However you can still be seen without a referral letter if you prefer not to bring one.

Dr Madhavi Vellayan working at the Winfield Hospital, Gloucester and Nuffield Hospital, Cheltenham offers short notice appointments, allowing women peace of mind that they can see someone as soon as possible if necessary. Both Dr Vellayan and her secretaries are easily contactable. Following detailed consultation, patients are also given the option to contact Dr Vellayan directly through email free of charge with queries that may arise at a later date, thereby ensuring ongoing care. Dr Vellayan always keeps in touch with her patients after discharge through telephone calls in the immediate few weeks after surgery before they are seen for post operative follow up to ensure that patients receive the best care possible.
