YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Where do I come?

The Circumcision Clinic Cardiff is located at the following address:

Circumcision Clinic Cardiff
Transcend Consulting Rooms
98 Wentloog Road
Rumney
Cardiff CF3 3XE

How long will the procedure take?

Expect to spend about one and a half hours at the clinic, though it can be longer. This includes the total procedure time as well as the time spent after the procedure to observe your child for any problems.

Why does it take so long?

Your baby will be assessed to ensure that he is well. The doctor will take some details about your baby and about his health since birth. It is advisable to delay the procedure if your baby has received his immunisation for at least one week. If the doctor thinks your child is not suitable a full explanation will be given as to why and alternative arrangements will be made.

We would also wish to observe your baby for half an hour after the circumcision to ensure that the procedure has been successful without any acute complications like bleeding.

What will happen at the clinic?

You will be asked to sign a consent form agreeing to the procedure being carried out on your son. It is mandatory that both parents are present to sign the consent form. The pros and cons of the procedure will be explained to you as well before you sign the consent form.

How much does it cost?

Call us to obtain a quotation for a fresh or a revision of a procedure. A prior consultation for a revision will have to be carried out which will incur consultation charges liable to be paid by whoever uses that service.

How do I pay?

We accept cash only. A cheque can also be accepted under exceptional circumstances but only along with the cheque guarantee card. You will be expected to make the payment to the receptionist/ secretary on arrival.

What is your policy regarding booking, cancellation and rescheduling of an appointment?

Bookings are only through appointments and a 48 hours’ notice is required for a cancellation or a rescheduling of the same appointment. Failure to do so will make the patients liable to pay the surcharge and administration fee which is 50% of the total cost of the procedure quoted.

In case where you wish to avail the facility for more than one person, a non-refundable full fee will have to be deposited before the confirmation of the appointment. In this instance, a 7 working days’ notice is required if you wish to cancel or reschedule the appointment after the confirmation. This is important because we run a very long waiting list and in a situation like this where a patient does not arrive for the appointment, we are unable to offer the chance to someone else and also have to bear the loss of time and resources.
