Consultation fees

Medical insured patients are advised to check with their insurers about requirement for a GP referral letter.
The fee is £195 for the first consultation. A follow up is usually included as the post operative care. The individual consultant’s secretary will be able to confirm this for you at booking.

Investigation and treatment costs

Medical insured patients should check with their insurers about policy cover for blood tests. Insurance companies require a pre-authorisation before they will consider funding any radiology imaging or endoscopy test and treatment. Please note the patient remains liable for any fees incurred that are not covered in full by their insurance.

The team adheres to the BUPA published tariff for procedures. A schedule of fees can be obtained from the individual consultant’s secretary. If you choose to pay for your own treatment, you could consider the BMI self-pay Option package.
