Supplying to the NHS for over 60 years
Hairadvice.info is part of A&A Studios hair loss clinic.¬† A&A Studios¬†has been contractors to the NHS nationwide since 1946. ¬†We are responsible for standardising and updating the categories of hairpieces which are now used by the NHS throughout the UK.¬† Our company plays an important part in negotiating with the UK Authorities.
With over 60 years‚Äô experience of working with NHS patients and their hair problems, we ensure that we offer a wide range of solutions, hairpieces and wigs.¬† In fact, our product range is the largest available in the UK.
If hair loss is due to chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment, the Oncology department will ask us to supply, fit and style a ready-to-wear wig for the patient.
Hospital dermatology i.e. skin departments, treat patients referred by their GPs for scalp problems and hair loss of all kinds.¬† Where appropriate, an order will be issued for a patient to obtain partial or full hairpieces and renewals as necessary.
At the moment, the supply of hairpieces and wigs is interpreted differently by NHS England, Scotland and Wales.¬†¬†Please discuss¬†these with your GP or hospital.¬†
HAIRPIECES AND WIGS
All patients have access to our vast array of ready-to-wear, soft synthetic wigs.¬† NHS prescriptions for real hair wigs or hairpieces are generally only issued for patients who are deemed to have a ‚Äúclinical need‚ÄĚ.¬† However, A&A staff is always pleased to offer patients advice on all types of products, including real hair wigs and hairpieces.
