When you register with us, it is important that we can identify you as an individual, each time you visit and at each stage of your treatment here.
Our team of friendly registration staff will help guide you through the registration form and offering advice on areas such as insurance cover, paying for your own account. This part of your journey is essential as incomplete or inaccurate information may cause delays to your appointment or your admission.
Appointments and Tests
An outpatient is a term used to describe a patient who is visiting a hospital or medical facility for a consultation, a diagnostic scan, tests or treatment and is not required to stay longer than approximately 4 hours.
At the time of making your appointment you will be advised of the date, time and location of where your consultation will take place, and any specific preparations or instructions that you may need to follow prior to the consultation (such as fasting).
Diagnostic scanning services are offered throughout The Wellington campus with the main imaging suite for outpatients based at the Lodge Road facility. Diagnostic imaging facilities are also located within each building for inpatient and day surgery procedures.
Outpatient imaging is also available at our satellite centre, The Wellington Diagnostics and Outpatients Centre in Golders Green.

The Acute Neurological Rehabilitation Unit
Patients are admitted to the Acute Neurological Unit or Intensive Care for a period of two to three weeks and can sometimes stay at the hospital for up to a year.
During their stay at the rehabilitation unit, the patient will participate in a programme of therapies including physiotherapy, occupational therapy and clinical psychology with the aim of improving their quality of life, reducing the pain they experience and increasing their independence in daily living.
