NHS patients:

Dr Shaw has an NHS clinic for Heart Failure patients on thursday mornings at Wythenshawe Hospital. This is a highly specialised clinic where Dr Shaw prioritises seeing patients with Advanced Heart Failure. His registrars and HF specialist nurses will help to see other patients for general review and medication changes. Dr Shaw runs an LVAD clinic on a friday (am & pm) and a transplant clinic on a monday (am & pm). 

Private patients:

Dr Shaw sees private patients on Tuesday evenings and Thursday afternoons at the BMI Alexandra Hospital in Cheadle, Cheshire and Spire Manchester Hospital in Didsbury. If you wish to self pay, a referral letter is not mandatory. Please simply call Dr Shaw's secretary or the appointments line at the hospital. A new consultation generally starts at £240 and lasts for 30 minutes. Subsequent outpatient tests or investigations are mainly charged by the private hospital (not Dr Shaw). You can find out the cost of each test before you decide to commit to them.

If you have private health insurance, you will usually require a referral letter from your GP (or other consultant). After you have this, it is good practice to telephone your insurance company before booking an appointment with Dr Shaw in order to get a pre-authorisation code. If any tests or follow up appointments are planned by Dr Shaw after the first appointment, you should again contact your insurer to check you are covered for these before they are performed. Dr Shaw is a 'fee-assured' consultant cardiologist which means his fees are within the recommendations by insurance companies. Insurance companies are invoiced directly. A list of common health insurance companies that Dr Shaw works with is listed below
