Consultation Fees

First Spinal Consultation (30 minutes) £300

Follow up appointment (20 minutes): £200

Consultation fees are charged separately. These are standard charges but some may vary according to agreements with medical insurance companies.

If you have UK private health insurance

  • Patients with private health insurance will remain liable for all charges until settled by the insurance company and will be asked to pay for invoices not settled within 3 months in addition to any policy excesses or items not covered by their insurer.
  • It is important to check how much your policy will pay, because some policies do not cover all the associated costs.
  • Patients insured with UK based insurers will be required to provide a membership and preauthorisation number for the invoices to be submitted directly to their insurer.
  • Day case and in-patient surgical procedures are billed in accordance with insurance company guidelines and patients will be provided with the CCSD code in order to gain pre-authorisation for the procedure from their insurers.

If you DO NOT have UK private health insurance

  • For procedures, self-pay patients will be provided with a fee estimate in advance of the procedure to cover surgeon, anaesthetist and hospital charges.
  • Patients paying for their own treatment, resident overseas or with non UK based insurers will be invoiced for initial spinal assessment and follow up consultation fees.
  • Consultation fees are payable within 14 days.
  • There may be an option of fixed-price treatment. This can be discussed with the hospital billing team once the CCSD procedure code has been submitted.
