Just wondering if anyone else is waiting for surgery by a company call Tonic. I was due to have self pay surgery in a private hospital in Luton UK called the Cobham clinic with private facilities, I’ve had my surgery moved several times (understandable due to COVID). But now that I’ve paid the balance of the fee they tell me that there will be a location change and now I have to have my surgery in the Luton NHS hospital in a ward with 5 beds per bay.
No difference in cost. And if I don’t like it I can have surgery delayed again with no known date.
Feels very fishy to me. If I were a conspiracy theorist, I’d suspect that they’ve got a cheaper deal and they are putting a gun to the heads of desperate patients to take the deal or go to the back of the queue.
I was wondering if anyone else is having a similar experience. Or if anyone else is having their surgery go ahead at the Cobham clinic.
I’d be so grateful for any experiences to either put my mind at rest or to take it up with them.
My trust is really flagging and it’s not a good frame of mind to go into surgery with.

Are there any local weight loss surgery Facebook groups for your area? You may get some responses there.

It does seem a bit of a rort though, paying for a private room but not going on a ward instead.
