How much will my treatment cost?
If you are paying for your own treatment:
New Patient Consultation (30 minute appointment, including examination and full history): £200
Review Consultation (15 minute appointment, price per each subsequent review): £100
Soft Tissue Injection (Steroid/Local Anaesthetic Injection): £50.00 (per injection - in addition to above)
(The above excludes any imaging, diagnostic testing, physiotherapy and/or hand therapy, which is charged independently by the respective Hospital/Healthcare Professional/third party)
I'm insured, will my insurance cover me?
I am recognised by, and have Provider Status with, all the major Insurance Companies – and I am fee assured.
This means that if you are insured by a particular Insurance Company (for example, Aviva, AXA PPP, Bupa, Vitality Health, WPA, etc), I will only charge the agreed fee set by that Insurer*
*Please note, however, that this will exclude any excesses on your policy/insurance, or instances where there is a ceiling on the total value remaining on your policy, which falls below the agreed fee paid by your Insurer.
Please check with your insurer for further details/clarification.
I need surgery - how do I get authorisation from my insurer?
If surgery is necessary, you will be advised of the relevant procedure and code – you should then contact your Insurer to enquire if your policy provides adequate cover and to request that they authorise the funding (for all the costs incurred by the Hospital, Surgeon and Anaesthetist, if applicable).
Most Insurers also make their fee schedules available on their websites, outlining the maximum amount payable per procedure.
I'm paying for my own treatment. What will it cost?
For “Pay For Yourself”/Self-Funding patients, the following are guidelines of Fixed Price Costs for various procedures. These prices are “all inclusive” and include all post-operative treatment.
You will always receive a written quotation for the full package price, for any surgical treatment, prior to any procedure being arranged. There will be no hidden costs.
Why have I received an invoice from you?
I work on an independent basis from the Hospital; my fees and payments are recouped by, and paid to me directly NOT via the Hospital (except in some exceptional cases, where a treatment package price has been agreed). The hospital invoices for its own costs separately.
If you are insured, I will invoice your insurance company directly for my fees, unless explicitly instructed otherwise.
