Welcome to David Albert's World

My aim is to provide a world class children's ENT service to children and parents in London and beyond

I feel it is vital that consultations take place in an appropriate environment with the child at ease and with parents free to concentrate on decisions.

I offer a conservative approach avoiding surgery if possible. If ENT surgery is necessary I work very closely with an expert paediatric anaesthetist. Please visit these web pages on paediatric ENT problems and their medical and surgical treatment.

Organising an Appointment?

Mr Albert has patients covered by all the major insurance companies and keeps his fees within their guidelines.

Grommet Follow up

Some insurance companies such as BUPA will not pay for grommet follow up if this is a routine check up and/or audiogram.  It is important medically and is in line with NHS practice.  You may therefore have to pay for these visits. If there is a new problem or concern a further GP letter may also be needed.  Non-routine concerns such as hearing, speech, discharge or early grommet extrusion would be examples that might need a new GP letter.

Sleep apnoea excluded on BUPA policies

 

Parents should be aware that BUPA policies usually contain an exclusion for sleep apnoea and sleep disordered breathing such as snoring.  This used only to be applied to adults but is now also applied to children.  Please check the wording of your policy to see if you are covered.
