Information for GPs

Our specialists recognise the importance of working closely with a patient’s general practitioner and are happy to give telephone advice on which investigation or treatment is most appropriate in an individual case. All of the interventional treatments offered are NICE approved and most (with the current exception of MRI guided focused ultrasound for fibroids, MRgFUS) are available either privately or on the NHS. NHS treatment for out of area patients may of course be subject to local funding agreement.

Patient information materials can be provided for GP surgeries and both Shirin Irani and Paul Crowe are available to give educational talks to GP groups or practices for CPD purposes. For any enquiries please use the contact form or e-mail

Private patient referrals can be posted to the individual hospital (see Locations) or can be posted to the Birmingham Fibroid Clinic office address:
