My fee for an initial consultation will not exceed £200 and my fee for any follow-up consultation will not exceed £130. These estimates are correct as of April 2019.


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.


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 following private medical insurers: Bupa, AXA PPP, Aviva, Vitality


Please note you are responsible for any fees not covered by your insurer.



 Financial Interests


I am legally obliged to tell you if I have any financial interests in the John Charnley Wing or any equipment there.  I can confirm I do not have any such financial interests.
