    Hi all,

    I’m just wondering after reading through the forums about people having a band fitted in Glasgow.

    I really want one though don’t fancy going abroad.

    Any info on Glasgow would be great.

    I went through hospital group and my surgery was in Bromsgrove, Birmingham.
    Just checked the hospital group's website and they cover Glasgow with a clinic at the below address:

    The Ingram House Clinic
    5th Floor
    227 Ingram Street
    Glasgow
    Lanarkshire
    G1 1DA

    01412044567

    I found the the entire thing problem free and easy. I called the clinic, booked the consultation, met the surgeon, booked my surgery date, had a call from the dietitian to talk me through the pre op (LRD = Liver Reduction Diet) diet and then went in for blood tests 2 days before surgery.

    With finance, the surgery is costing around £6,000 including the £500 upfront deposit you pay to secure your surgery day on consultation.
    They sort the finance out for you and everything. So easy.

    I don't think its recommended to go abroad for a band because the aftercare requires band fills for a couple of years later. With THG, they include either 2 or 4 years aftercare which includes the fills.
