This page sets out some important information that I am required by law to provide to you. 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 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 £250 and my fee for any follow-up consultation will not exceed £190
These estimates are correct as at the date of viewing this page.
Should you cancel your appointment with less than 48 hours’ notice, a cancellation fee of up to 50% of the appointment charge will be charged.
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 me, 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 I will charge in relation to any of the tests I advise that you have, I will let you know what those will be.
My fee for patch testing (over 3 days) will not exceed £600. My fee for skin prick testing will not exceed £167.
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.
Please note you are responsible for any fees not covered by your insurer.
I am legally obliged to inform you that I have no financial interest at any of the hospitals or clinics that I practice at.
