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.
Our fee for an initial consultation will not exceed £280 and our fee for any follow-up consultation will not exceed £200.
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.
We are legally obliged to tell you if we have any financial interests in any of the private hospitals, clinics or any equipment there. We can confirm we do not have any such financial interests.
You can compare independent information about the quality of private treatment offered at the hospital and other private healthcare providers from the Private Healthcare Information Network (PHIN) website: www.phin.org.uk.
