Fees & Charges

You are here:

Outpatient Appointment

Please take the time to carefully read the following as it contains important information that we are required by law to provide to you.  As this includes information about our charges, if you do not have private medical insurance but someone else will be paying your bill, you may wish them to review this page on our website. Please note that even if someone else is paying your bill or you have private medical insurance, you are responsible for paying any charges, which they do not pay.

Consultation Fee

Our fee for an initial consultation will not exceed £200 and our fee for any follow-up consultation will not exceed £150.

Following your consultation, you may need certain tests (such as blood tests or imaging, for example an X-ray, MRI or CT scan) to help me diagnose your condition.  If the test is undertaken by the clinic or hospital, and not by us, the fees for those tests will be determined by the clinic or hospital and charged to you, or your private medical insurer, separately.

If there are any fees, which we will charge in relation to any of the tests we advise that you have, we will let you know what those will be.

Private Medical Insurance

If you have private medical insurance, please contact your insurer before your consultation, to check the terms of your policy, particularly the level and type of outpatient cover you have, including any reimbursement limits on individual consultation fees.
