Will my private health insurance cover the cost of my consultation?
This will depend on the terms of your policy. Please contact your insurance provider for further details. However, if the cost of the consultation itself is not covered, it is our experience that the cost of any referrals or investigations is likely to be met.
If I need a blood test, X-ray or scan, would you be able to refer me at the time of my consultation?
Yes. Blood tests, further investigations, prescriptions, referrals, certificates and letters can usually be arranged at the time of consultation.* Consultant advice can often be sought promptly as many specialists are present in the hospital during clinic times.
Routine appointments usually last 30 minutes. First appointments, which include registration and a full medical history, are likely to be longer.
*These may incur additional cost
