NEWS • Two in five adults have anxiety, a third have depression, and more than a quarter have low self-esteem. • 62% say their sleep is affected by their mental health struggles, with a third trying to READ their mental health battles away. • Six in 10 (60%) do not believe their workplace ‘truly cares’ about their mental health. The state of the nation’s mental health has been revealed, showing a number of struggles for adults in the UK, including anxiety (39%), depression (33%) and low self-esteem (28%). The new study, to mark the launch of therapist matching website, TherapyFinders, found that challenging mental experiences are affecting people’s sleep (62%), ability to enjoy life (48%), and their relationships (47%). However, a huge seven in 10 (70%) have never received professional help from a therapist or counsellor for their troubles. When it comes to reasons why adults haven’t reached out for professional support, the main put-offs are the cost of doing it (27%), not thinking their issues are serious enough to get help (21%), and finally not feeling comfortable enough talking to a stranger about their problems (20%). Instead, a third (34%) turn to reading books to improve their mental health, with a further 24% turning to gardening and the same amount plastering on a smile (even when they’re not feeling like it). Claire Williams, founder of client-to-therapist ‘matching’ website, TherapyFinders, says: “It sadly doesn’t come as much of a surprise that so many people in the UK are living with a mental health illness and, quite often it appears, in silence. Our TherapyFinders research shows that adults are unsure of the type of therapy they could need, and for workers, 70% do not know how to access any mental health support that could be available to them. “Reaching out for help can often feel the toughest part of the healing process. However it is essential, and it really doesn’t matter if the challenging feelings people are experiencing feel small or fleeting. Every person deserves a clear and peaceful mind, and I’d encourage them to find the support they need by taking the first step to getting help..” The research also showed that, for those in employment, 70% say their workplace doesn’t make it clear on how to access the mental health support available, with 60% claiming their workplace doesn’t ‘truly care’ about their mental health at all. Over a third (37%) believe that if they do share any struggles with bosses, they may think they are unstable or unreliable as a member of staff. The Mental State of the Nation

NEWS Dr Anna Mandeville, Consultant Clinical Psychologist and UK Clinical Director at Koa Health on how women’s mental health can be supported in the workplace “Working women face persistent challenges around mental health. Pay inequity, gendered biases and a lack of work-life balance contribute to common mental health conditions. Women are twice as likely as men to be diagnosed with anxiety and three times as likely to experience common mental health problems. Juggling caregiving and work responsibilities, struggling with hormonal changes and trying to keep up with personal relationships leads to increased levels of stress. This can translate to feeling overwhelmed, burnt out or depressed. This international Women’s Day, employers must create a culture that supports women’s mental health, particularly in the workplace. It starts with an organisation making it clear that mental health is squarely on the agenda. Providing comprehensive benefits is the next step. Giving employees access to high-quality digital mental health tools provides an efficient and discreet route to guided self-help and ensures appropriate privacy. Discreet access is vital for women who fear they will be seen as weak or unprofessional for asking for help. Employers must also measure women’s wellbeing within the workforce as, without this, it’s impossible to drive accountability and positive change. Feeling supported and psychologically safe in the workplace can have a tremendous impact on culture change. With this support, women are more able to bring their best selves and ideas to work”.

7 GHP Q1 2023 Managing a successful agency today is more challenging than ever. It requires a combination of category expertise, talent, and the ability to act at a seemingly ever accelerating. Everything is on a fast track, and only agencies like Elevate Healthcare Marketing can keep up. Here we look at its outstanding work as it wins Most Impactful Healthcare Marketing Agency 2023 – East Coast USA. Elevate Healthcare Marketing has proven to be an agency whose strategic communications work is a phenomenal asset to every brand it works with. It remains dedicated to bucking the status quo and challenging any assumptions in the biopharma and medical device sphere. At every stage, the pace of doing business is quickening, with even the cadence of building out campaigns changed. Frank X. Powers – Elevate’s Co-Founder and Managing Partner – put it this way, “If you want to survive and grow to serve clients better, to do better work than the next agency, you have to be smarter, better, more impactful, more creative—and now, faster.” Thus, marketing agencies must change alongside this change in environment, which is precisely what Elevate does for itself and brings to each of its client organisations. Since its foundation in 2015, Elevate has attracted a team of likeminded people with their hearts set on helping grow and create change for businesses. Early on, Elevate recognised that identifying the best solutions for its clients could be achieved more efficiently and successfully with a leaner, more experienced senior team of strategists who bring immediate value in a highly focused manner. Elevate encourages seeing said challenges as ‘beautiful constraints’ and elements where they can differentiate and surprise the market. From there, it translates, transforms, and completely elevates the promise of those opportunities into real-world success. This is accomplished by the agency’s leverage of its top people – sourced from multiple disciplines across the business and healthcare world – whom all work together to provide a comprehensive view of the complexities of a dynamic healthcare landscape. They quickly identify business and brand opportunities that can significantly impact a client’s business and efficiently turn those into the steps a client needs to succeed. It is through these means and perspectives that Elevate Healthcare Marketing has successfully guided numerous biopharma and medical device brands – such as Johnson & Johnson MedTech, Grifols, and Biofrontera – to carve out their niche in the market and successfully compete where others have floundered or gone under. Brands collaborating with Elevate have been transformed into successful symbols of positive market disruption, and all parties have found stunning success and profitability. This was firmly reflected in 2021, with Elevate achieving 42% growth – reaching a milestone of surpassing $10M in billings. From an agency with just over 50 employees in its 6th year of business, it is a remarkable achievement for a from-the-groundup independent agency and a clear indicator of the success of its work. When it comes to its future plans, Elevate intends to double down on what makes it successful. This includes today’s working environment as the agency moves to new office space designed to accommodate any mix of remote, hybrid, and full-time colleagues. In addition, mental health initiatives at multiple levels – prioritising self-care and career development – with culture-building exercises emphasising connections and collaboration are also in the works for Elevate. Taking continual care of its people whilst taking full advantage of the changes in how work and business are done are the crucial elements that have kept Elevate relevant and ahead. Thus, it won’t stop now. The Most Impactful Healthcare Marketing Agency 2023 on the East Coast of the USA will continue to barrel onwards, ensuring challenger brands of all sizes and scopes find their way to greater heights.

8 Venous surgery has come a long way since Professor Mark Whiteley first established his clinic in 2001 – as has the clinic itself. Now,TheWhiteley Clinic is a world-renowned medical clinic specialising in the investigation, treatment, and research into venous disease. In light of it being crowned Best Varicose Veins Treatment Clinic 2023 – UK, we got in touch with Professor Whiteley himself to explore the progression of venous surgery as well as learn more about his cutting-edge clinic. Expert Treatment of Varicose Veins lthough venous disease is often thought to be only varicose veins or telangiectasia (spider veins), the world of venous disease, or phlebology, has moved on. The industry now investigates and treats patients with many venous problems, all over the body, from the usual varicose veins and spider veins to pelvic congestion syndrome, venous leg ulcers, venous eczema, vulval varicose veins or varicocele (varicose veins around the testicles), and the new specialty of “aesthetic phlebology” – which is the treatment of bulging or green veins on the forehead, temples, around the eyes, hands, breasts, and feet. The treatment of venous surgery is no longer hospital-based and performed under general anaesthetic with poor medium- and long-term results. Now it is based in the likes of The Whiteley Clinic with walk-in walk-out pinhole surgery performed under local anaesthetic and providing excellent medium- and long-term results. Having been brought about by huge amounts of research and development, this makes the investigations and treatments offered by The Whiteley Clinic unique in the UK, and this is the reason the clinic is recognised as amongst the leading few venous specialist clinics in the world. The Whiteley Clinic is highly focused on using research to give its patients the most up-to-date and effective treatment by following The Whiteley Protocol®. This audits the clinic’s results continuously through the College of Phlebology Venous Registry to prove that its results are as good as it claims. This protocol is constantly updated as new research is performed and proven. Professor Whiteley states, “Our commitment to research and the speed at which we incorporate it into patient treatments makes our approach unique in the UK and probably the world.” Although aesthetic clinics can deal with small blue and green veins on the face, breasts, and hands, many find it impossible to treat very large veins that are bulging or deep – And chances are they are not part of the College of Phlebology Venous Registry, meaning none of their doctors can honestly say whether they achieve good results or not in the long-term. Professor Whiteley says, “Patients are well advised to ensure that any doctor that they consult is part of the College of phlebology venous registry so that they know that their doctor’s results are being monitored and poor results cannot be hidden.” The Whiteley Clinic’s research concentrates on those patients who cannot be cured in these traditional aesthetic clinics. It has developed a series of new techniques which have been presented internationally and published in peer-reviewed journals, with one case being patented as a new technique. As such, this is another area of venous surgery in which The Whiteley Clinic is recognised as a world-leading facility. Meanwhile, just like the rest of medicine, venous surgery is now personalised, but The Whiteley Clinic has been doing this for over 20 years. It has previously been thought that patients with varicose veins only have two veins that can be at fault (great saphenous vein and small saphenous vein). This has led to an idea that varicose vein treatments are “standard”. However, research has now shown that leg varicose veins come from any combination of one or more of 150 different veins in the legs and/or pelvis. As such, every patient has an individual pattern and The Whiteley Protocol® allows the clinic to identify each of these patterns, and produce a staged approach to any possible combination. Although a fairly new area of medicine, The Whiteley Protocol® has indeed recognised the difference in venous patterns and it focuses on the personalisation of treatments to the individual’s reflux pattern. Professor Whiteley explains, “Because this is not widely understood, our treatments are very different from the normal varicose vein or leg ulcer treatments available in the UK. Whereas most doctors or clinics try to simplify treatments, we treat every individual part of the problem with the optimal results. This takes longer and requires three stages of treatment but ends up giving the lowest possible risk of recurrence and the best results for our patients.” The Whiteley Clinic being recognised as a world-leading clinic has its perks, too, with it benefiting hugely from companies bringing to it the latest devices and techniques and allowing it to provide truly unique treatments to patients such as Echotherapy treatment using high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU). A non-invasive treatment of varicose veins, ultrasound is beamed through the skin and focused onto the vein, thus destroying it. Professor Whiteley enthuses, “It is completely revolutionary and is the next step forward from pinhole surgery.” He goes on to say, “While pinhole surgery still requires things to be inserted into the vein such as laser catheters, radiofrequency A Oct22559

GHP Q1 2023 catheters, or chemicals, HIFU is directed from outside of the body, through the skin and heating by focusing the ultrasound precisely on the vein to be treated. The Whiteley Clinic is currently the leading centre in the world for Echotherapy treatment (HIFU) of varicose veins and has the only machine in the UK.” Also contributing to The Whiteley Clinic’s huge success within the industry is the leadership across the business, which is based on a team approach. The clinicians are led by world-leading experts in their areas, with current research and teaching portfolios ensuring they are respected not only within the clinic but also by the wider medical community. The financial team is led by a very experienced finance manager, the technical quality team by an excellent clinical quality nurse, and the management of the clinic by a very approachable and experienced clinic manager. The Whitely Clinic has a very flat management structure and being a medical clinic, understands the importance of interpersonal relationships. Therefore, all of the managers and staff meet regularly so any potential problems can be shared and dealt with as soon as possible. All staff and patients remark on the “family feel” to the clinic, as everybody is clear on the objectives of providing the very best care and treatment to patients. Ultimately, it is clear to see what makes The Whiteley Clinic such a respected, award-winning name within the industry. Many other clinics will claim to strive for excellence, but The Whiteley Clinic has a proven track record of doing so. And it is showing no signs of stopping any time soon. We are truly rooting for this clinic as it continues to research and develop and strive to be better than it has ever been before.

10 Launched in Autumn of 2020, Reframe is the #1 alcohol reduction and elimination app on the market. Created through the combined efforts of Georgia Tech graduates Vedant Pradeep and Ziyi Gao, Reframe has forged a remarkable reputation in the health and wellness arena in just two short years. We spoke with Vedant to find out more about Reframe’s achievements and mission. To date, Reframe has helped close to one million individuals in their pursuit of reducing or quitting alcoholic consumption. This impressive declaration is made even more impressive by the fact that this has been achieved in just two years. Utilising an effective combination of neuroscience, mindfulness, and progress tracking, Reframe’s users can – nine times out of ten – meet their drinking goals in just two months. What’s left then, is the crucial question of – how? How has Reframe secured a success rate that fundamentally distinguishes it from any competing app in the sphere? Vedant began by offering an explanation. “Reframe is the first neuroscience-based alcohol reduction/elimination app. We consulted with 500 medical and mental health experts at Harvard, John Hopkins, and Emory. Integrating science and wellness techniques such as meditation, helps us appeal to a broader demographic and allows users to create lasting change. “But, Reframe is also more than an alcohol-reducing or elimination app. Reframe is the partner individuals need to help make wellrounded decisions about drinking that benefit them physically, mentally, and emotionally.” Of course, one crucial benefit of endeavouring to reduce alcohol consumption through Reframe is that it is private, with no need to travel to recovery centers or attend AA sessions. It also adapts and improves continuously on the back of user feedback in ways that more traditional methods simply can’t. Vedant is all too aware of the unique ways that Reframe operates, and benefits of utilising an app over alternative options. “Reframe seeks to help those who don’t know where to start, don’t have much time or patience, are turned off by the stigmas of recovery centers, or have difficulty staying committed to their goals. We value our users. In part, thanks to feedback from users, the app has been optimized numerous times, making it continuously more user-friendly, allowing us to integrate more helpful tools and personalized customization that leads to changing habits that last forever.” In many ways, Reframe launched onto the market at the perfect time. The pandemic resulted in many coming face to face with their potential mortality, and held a microscope up to bad habits. Many opted to pursue self-improvement, while others doubleddown or started drinking as a result of the stress and uncertainty brought on by COVID-19. “Studies show that individuals increased their drinking during the pandemic, and many have continued to drink excessively even now. That said, excess drinking has always been an issue for many. We are happy that we can offer an app with evidence-based solutions that are proven to be effective. Understanding that excess drinking is a problem, we continuously ask ourselves how can we make our product truly engaging and make people love using it? We want people to look forward to logging in to do their daily exercise and engage with the app. That means we need to make the app “prophetic” and address the right problem at the right time, which is why we are constantly adding more solutions.” All things considered, Reframe was aptly named, as it seeks to change the perspective on an issue that impacts millions around the world. By creating a platform that champions and promotes agency, self-reflection and independence, Reframe’s users take control of their own alcohol reduction in a way that is inherently rewarding, without external oversight from other individuals. The appeal speaks for itself. So, where does Reframe go from here? Putting aside the continuous innovation and development – what are Vedant and Ziyi’s next steps? “We hope to translate the app to multiple languages to reach non-English speakers. We are expanding to different verticals, such as Reframe Mind, an evidence-based education program that helps you manage stress. With Reframe Mind, you will identify, control, and regulate your emotions using the power of behavioural psychology and neuroscience.” Reframe’s success rate acts as a potent testament to the viability of its approach. On a landscape where it has thoroughly defined the parameters for success, Reframe has set the path for others to follow. In its role as pacesetter, it sets the bar high, with an ethos that revolves entirely around refinement. Development. Betterment, essentially. There can be no doubt that Reframe is a trusted entity in this space and trusted by hundreds of thousands of individuals – making its recognition as the Most Trust Alcohol Reduction App in the USA a no brainer. As the undisputed leader in this arena, it has an astonishingly bright future ahead of it.

GHP Q1 2023

12 Proteocyte AI is a Canadian medtech company that uses proteomics to individually assess cancer risk in vulnerable patients.The STRATICYTE test, which assigns a five-year oral cancer risk score to patients with oral pre-cancer (OPMD), has just become commercially available after years of development and research. It has been made possible by the Proteocyte team, a very experienced, diversified, balanced, and extremely driven group that includes oral surgeons, head and neck surgeons, otolaryngologists, medical pathologists, oral pathologists, and health research scientists. Oral Cancer develops in hundreds of thousands of new patients globally each year. Unfortunately, the five-year survival rate of 50-60% has stood relatively unchanged over the past 50 years. The high mortality of this disease is due to late presentation for definitive and potentially curative treatment. Only 25% of oral cancer patients present with early disease. Cancer developing from the mucosal lining of the mouth, called Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma (OSCC) accounts for most oral cancer cases. Virtually all OSCCs develop from a pre-existing lesion called OPMD (Oral Potentially Malignant Disorder). There are a number of conditions comprising the WHO OPMD classification system, some with malignant transformation rates as high as 36%. Identifying high risk patients and managing them appropriately should lead to diagnosis of OSCC at the earliest stages of microinvasion, thus lowering the mortality and morbidity of this disease. Some cases of OSCC may in fact be prevented with aggressive management of high risk OPMD patients. Clinical oral examination, even with the assistance of various dyes and lights, cannot reliably identify OSCC or OPMD high risk patients. Clinicians must biopsy suspicious lesions and have routine histopathology performed on the submitted tissue. The “gold standard” for assessing risk of OPMD lesions that may undergo malignant transformation has been dysplasia grading. Dysplasia grading is a subjective microscopic opinion from the pathologist regarding how abnormal the biopsy tissue is. Dysplasia grading has poor reproducibility and poor cancer predictive ability, but it has governed OPMD patient management for decades. For many years, there has been a world-wide search for a reliable biomarker that can be objectively quantified and analyzed in OMPD patients and be used to predict cancer risk. Most potential tests are still a long way away from actual clinical use. Proteocyte AI now offers the STRATICYTE test for use in the management of OPMD patients, which has the backing of numerous key opinion leaders who have been waiting for years to have an accurate biomarker to assist with the care of these patients. If a suspicious oral lesion is identified and biopsied by the surgeon, and a diagnosis of OPMD is rendered, unstained microscopic slides from the lab handling the original biopsy tissue are requested for STRATICYTE testing. STRATICYTE testing can be seamlessly incorporated into your practice as no additional biopsy is required. The slides are immunohistochemically stained for a cellular protein called S100A7 which is involved in cell replication and invasion in many cancers. The digitalized microscopic images are computer scanned and analyzed for S100A7 and cellular morphology and the results are compared with a large data base of patients followed for many years that have or have not gone on to develop OSCC. An individualized five-year oral risk is assigned to the patient as either low or elevated, directing appropriate surveillance. High risk patients will be monitored and treated more aggressively. Clinicians and patients can now feel confident that their care is being guided by an advanced and truly objective test. Ultimately, it comes as no surprise that Proteocyte AI has recently been recognized in the Global Excellence Awards 2023 with Best Innovative Prediction Platform, 2023 - Canada. As the company continues to develop new products to address oral cancer as well as other human cancers, we hope to continue making a positive impact on the lives of patients at risk for oral cancer, as well as increasing it’s reach to clinicians and patients globally, reducing the mortality, morbidity, and the financial burden of oral cancer. The STRATICYTE test is now commercially available in Canada and the US through Patient Care Solutions Inc (proteocyte@ or 1-833-5-PROTEO. Proteocyte hopes to see this product available globally in the near future. The sensitivity and specificity performance of the STRATICYTE test is comparable to other cancer prediction tools such as Mammaprint and Endopredict.

14 GHP Q1 2023 From small clinics and doctor’s offices to multi-location long-term care facilities, Wellness Labs provides medical professionals with a range of testing services followed by fast results.With the goal of improving patient care, the company aims to provide the best quality services possible. As a result of its efficient testing as well as its convenient courier service and online results portal, Wellness Labs is Oklahoma’s Leading Clinical Diagnostic Testing Laboratory in the Global Excellence Awards 2023. Science That Cares About Patients roviding molecular, genetic, chemistry, haematology, microbiology, and toxicology clinical testing to the professional medical community, Wellness Labs is a locally owned, independent full-service reference laboratory. It utilizes advance techniques in many areas to provide clinicians and doctors with insight into patients’ health, which has several benefits. The testing reduces unnecessary antibiotic administration, allows potential problems to be identified before they become serious, facilitates more targeted treatment, and reduces overall costs as a result. Tailoring its services to meet the varied needs of clients, the company provides accurate, reliable, and rapid results so that medical professionals can spend more time caring for patients. Ensuring to keep up with latest scientific processes and technologies, Wellness Labs provide many different services. Firstly, the company utilizes chemistry, haematology and immunoassay testing in its blood analysis services. Providing a comprehensive overview of patient health, blood tests are a commonly used tool which allow doctors to test for various diseases and conditions, as well as effectively monitor treatment of chronic health conditions. Secondly, Molecular Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing is also available at Wellness Labs, which is 3 to 5 times more sensitive than conventional techniques, allowing pathogen identification results to be returned to the client between 12 and 24 hours after the specimen is acquired. Time is crucial in caring for patients, so the fast results obtained by Wellness Labs allow critical decisions to be made quickly. Furthermore, the company provides accurate clinical toxicology testing, for example Urine Drug Tests (UDT), which are frequently used in the treatment of Substance Abuse Disorder (SUD). Accurate results from these tests are important for doctors to be able to adjust medication and make changes to treatment which affect patients’ long-term quality of life. In addition, UDT can be used to monitor compliance in taking medication and identify undisclosed drug use. Since not everyone reacts to medication and treatment in the same way, specialised testing helps clients identify treatments that will and will not work for their patients. Examples of specialized testing include Cancer Genomics (CGx) and Pharmacogenomics (PGx). These tests perform in-depth analysis on patients’ base genetic sequence. The results can then be used to identify what, if any, cancer genes may be present (CGx), and what drug treatments will work best for a patient (PGx). These tests are incredible for deciding treatment and improving patients’ quality of life. Additional convenient services provided by Wellness Labs include a courier service and online client portal access. The company picks up clients’ samples daily or on-demand as needed. Requests made before 5pm are usually collected the same day, and those made after 5pm are picked up the following day. With a secure online environment, clients can use the results portal to order and review patient test results rapidly and at their own convenience. With unrivalled customer support and attention to detail, Wellness Labs aims to be the go-to provider of superior and affordable testing. Constantly harnessing new technologies and techniques to adapt to the needs of its clients, the company measures its success through clients’ abilities to provide high standards of patient care, which is what it strives to facilitate through its work. Treating clients’ patients like its own, the company is committed to providing the best services possible using the most up-todate technology and scientific processes, in order to improve patient care. As a result, Wellness Labs have been recognised as Oklahoma’s Leading Clinical Diagnostic Testing Laboratory in the GHP Global Excellence Awards 2023.

19 GHP Q1 2023 For the third time, Hair Transplant Solutions has won Most Trusted Hair Transplant Provider in the GHP Global Excellence Awards. This doesn’t come as a surprise if you consider the events of the last twelve months as this award-winning company continues to impress its many clients whilst amassing a commendable number of 5-star reviews. With an unrivalled collection of before and after imagery, the business really is establishing itself as “the one to watch”. Here, we talk to Tony Owen, Owner and MD of Hair Transplant Solutions, about the services the firm provides. Hair Transplant Solutions Continues Impressive Growth air Transplant Solutions provides professional, up-to-date, transparent, and truthful information on the highest quality, affordable hair transplants available in Turkey. Specialising in FUE and DHI transplantation, the company also provides a chaperoning service which involves escorting clients to the clinic in Istanbul and organising every aspect of the trip for them. Tony tells us exclusively; “The chaperone service we offer continues to be the most popular package, as clients really do love the handholding experience from start to finish. It means they literally don’t have to worry about anything because I take care of it all for them, from ensuring they get travel arrangements sorted to organising the shuttle to and from the airport, as well as to and from the hotel and the clinic. “The biggest advantage the chaperone client gets is the fact that they have me in the room with them when their hairlines are being designed and planned. At this stage, it’s very important that the client is listened to and is 100% happy with the design. So many clients that come to us for repair procedures tell us that they weren’t necessarily listened to at their previous clinic and that they came out with something they simply didn’t expect. “All those issues, and so many more, are nonexistent with Hair Transplant Solutions. To be honest, that also applies to those who choose to travel alone, selecting the virtual chaperone trip. With this option, I am with them over the phone to talk them through the stages and ensure things go to plan.” Hair Transplant Solutions is into its sixth year now and clients travel from all over the world with Tony to have their procedures done in the partner clinic in Istanbul. In the last few trips, clients have travelled from London, Manchester, Liverpool, Scotland, Ireland, New Zealand, Dubai, Malaysia, and Australia. Clients are attracted by the price and quality difference in Turkey compared to rest of the world. While prices are reasonable, the quality is very high. “Not all Turkey clinics are the same,” Tony adds. “I planned the business over several years interviewing over fifty of the best clinics to ensure that the best partner was selected for Hair Transplant Solutions. I have also had all three types of hair transplant performed on me over fifteen years, so I am armed with a wealth of knowledge that I can put to perfect use with our clients. We also pride ourselves in not over-harvesting grafts from the donor area. We do a very intricate and well-planned procedure that ensures the client retains a healthy donor area. This is important because some of the clients with large areas of baldness in particular need that area to be maintained in case they need a second transplant. “We deal with everything from those who just want increased hair thickness and density to those who have male pattern baldness that has been bothering them for a while. We also do a lot of procedures on those who have sadly made the decision to get cheap transplants done in the UK, thinking they will get as good a job as they will with us, and it simply doesn’t work out. These clients have thin hair with minimal density after being promised mega graft procedures. Adverts for these procedures in the UK tend to offer “maximum grafts”, but they simply cannot deliver the same number of grafts that we do for the same price. I hear this story quite a lot and clients all say the same thing afterwards; ‘I wish I would have come with you in the first place.” With the unique chaperone service, Tony is there for his clients every step of the way, from the initial conversation to the 12-month aftercare period. He is dedicated to ensuring that clients get exactly what they ask for from their procedure. Offering a trustworthy service, Hair Transplant Solutions changes people’s lives for the better. As a result of this outstanding service, the company has won Most Trusted Hair Transplant Provider in the GHP Global Excellence Awards 2023.
