Consultation Fees

Outpatient Appointment 

Thank you for choosing to see me for your outpatient consultation. This letter sets out some important information that I am required by law to provide to you. This is for your information only and is not a bill. As this includes information about my charges, if you do not have private medical insurance but someone else will be paying your bill, you may wish to pass a copy of this letter to them. 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 

My fee for an initial consultation is £300 and my fee for any follow-up consultation is £300. These estimates are correct as at the date of this letter. For complex cases, second or multiple opinions or medicolegal patients the fee may be higher and will be confirmed with you before your booking. 

Should you cancel your appointment with less than 24 hours’ notice a cancellation fee of £300 will be charged. 

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

If there are any fees which I will charge in relation to any of the tests I advise that you have, I 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.

Financial Interests 

I am legally obliged to tell you if I have any financial interests in any of the facilities I consult from or from any equipment in those facilities. I can confirm I do not have any such financial interests.
