I am registered for providing specialist care with most of the health insurance companies. A list of the companies is provided below. I adhere to the set fees of each individual insurance provider.
For self-funding patients, the fee for new out patient appointment is £250 and follow up appointment is £150. Kindly inform my secretary whether you are self funding or covered by insurance. If you are self funding and due to have a procedure, please contact my secretary who will be able to provide you with the costings.
Insured patients are kindly advised to contact their insurance to obtain pre-authorisation for any procedure or clinic consultations. Since there might be certain limits on each policy, it is advisable to discuss this in advance with the insurance company. Please note, any financial shortfall will be the responsibility of the individual patient.
