Whether you have referred yourself, or been referred because of concern about your thyroid, the consultant surgeon will discuss the nature of your problem and any other relevant information, such as your general medical history and family history.  A thorough examination will follow.  The nurse can be present during this examination.

The consultant surgeon will discuss your care with you, and may request investigations and tests to assist with the diagnosis.  Normally these investigations will have been booked when you made your initial appointment.  If they are required, you will be given the relevant forms to present to the onsite X-Ray and Imaging Unit.

An appointment will be arranged for a follow up consultation, to discuss the outcome of the investigations and any ongoing treatment plan.  

The consultant surgeon will write to your GP and any other referring doctor and relevant specialists, summarising your consultation and the planned investigations.  Copies of the letter can be sent to you, if requested.  Letters will also be sent after all subsequent consultations, and as the results of investigations become available.
