COMPETITION AND MARKETING AUTHORITY DISCLOSURE
Thank you for choosing to see me for an outpatient consultation. The below sets out some important information that I am required by law to provide to patients. 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 information 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.
My fee for an initial consultation will not exceed £300.00 and my fee for any follow-up consultation will not exceed £200.00. The consultation fee for a second opinion will not exceed £500. These estimates are correct as at the date of this letter. Should you cancel your appointment with less than 24 hours’ notice, a cancellation fee of up to 100% of the appointment charge may be charged.
Following your consultation, you may need certain tests (such as blood tests or imaging, for example a PET, CT, MRI or ultrasound) to help me diagnose your condition. These tests are undertaken by the hospital, and not by me, the fees for those tests will be determined by the hospital and charged to you, or your private medical insurer, separately.
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.
I am recognised by the private medical insurers listed below:
BUPA, AXA/PPP, Aviva, Vitality, WPA, Cigna, Allianz as well as other providers.
Please note; you are responsible for any fees not covered by your insurer.
I am legally obliged to tell you if I have any financial interests in the Hospitals or any equipment within them. I can confirm I 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.
I look forward to seeing you in my clinic.
