Private patients

Mr. Wajed is an approved and recommended surgeon for all of the major UK health insurance companies.

Uninsured (self-pay) patients are welcome to be seen privately, and if required, extremely competitive fixed price packages can be offered through the Exeter Nuffield Health or Royal Devon & Exeter Hospitals, for all investigations as therapeutic procedures including for the LINX.

Alternatively, transfer to the NHS can easily be arranged, including if you are from outside the South West, and LINX is not available on the NHS in your region.

Private consultations are usually available on Mondays and Thursdays. Operations are performed on Tuesdays (Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital) and Wednesdays (Exeter Nuffield Hospital).

If you would like to arrange a consultation, please make an appointment by contacting the numbers below, and please bring copies of any investigation or test results that you have had. If possible, a letter of referral and summary from your GP, Gastroenterologist or Local Surgeon would be very helpful. Telephone consultations can be made by special arrangement

Prior to deciding on suitability for LINX or anti-reflux surgery, you should have been investigated with an endoscopy, oesophageal manometry and 24-hour pH study and a contrast swallow X-ray. These can be arranged in Exeter if required.
