Fees

CONSULTANT & HOSPITAL FEES

Consultation fees are available on request and can be found on the Private Healthcare Information Network (PHIN) website.

The outpatient appointment fees are for consultation only. This fee does not include:

  • X-rays or MRI scans (or any other radiology diagnostic tests)
  • Blood tests or injections (Outpatient or In-Patient)
  • Physiotherapy or operations

Details of radiology or physiotherapy costs should be obtained direct from the relevant hospital. Should a procedure be recommended,  clear details of procedure code would be provided, which will enable you to discuss reimbursement with your medical insurance company. The level of ‘cover’ may differ depending on the company and the type of policy you have.

The Federation of Independent Practitioner Organisations (FIPO) have written a document which explains more about medical fees in the private sector. Click here for further information.

UTILISING YOUR MEDICAL HEALTH INSURANCE 

We will endeavour to help you utilise your medical insurance where possible but ask that prior to your initial appointment with us you thoroughly check the conditions of your policy with your insurer.

We are recognised by all the major private insurance companies including BUPA, AVIVA, AXA PPP, Cigna, Vitality, Simply Health and WPA. Every policy is different and we are not party to either individual or corporate policy information. It is important to note that our contract to treat is with you, the patient, and regardless of medical health cover you remain responsible for the payment of fees. This is especially important in the event of any failure by your insurer to fully reimburse your treatment which results in a shortfall in payment.

SELF-PAY PACKAGES

Self-funding patients can obtain a detailed quote from the hospital which will cover the hospital, surgeon and anaesthetic fees for each specific procedure. Please contact us for further information.

Please note: Proceeding any further with a private consultation or treatment is on the basis that you have read and understood the above. Our advice would be that you keep a clear record of any contact you have with your insurer noting the date, the names of staff you spoke to and any claim or authorisation numbers relevant to your consultation or treatment.

    Testimonials

    I had a knee arthroscopy to removed and clean up damaged cartilage after 6 years of repeated injury and dislocation from playing sport. I had been putting off the idea of surgery, but it was a great decision to finally get it seen to. I couldn't be happier with the results so far, and in less time than expected. Running, squats and climbing stair caused pain, and a lot more cracking than a 22 year old's knee should have! Now 2 weeks after the op, and following the physio exercises given after the operations, I am driving and climbing/ descending stairs without a problem and on the road to a full recover and hoping to get back to regular exercise within the next few weeks.

    I came to see you approximately four years ago and talked through the pros and cons of having an ACL replacement following an ACL rupture in my right knee I suffered playing an ill- advised game of beach volley ball on holiday in Antigua. I went ahead with the operation which you successfully performed at the Dunedin Hospital in Reading, I got on with my rehab and I now just wanted to let you to know that I will be running the London Marathon in three weeks (and raising money for Whizz-Kidz a disability charity for young people.) This letter is just a belated thank you for enabling this to happen.

    Mr Davies is a fantastic surgeon he put in a half knee joint in my right knee I have no problem with it ever since the operation in August last year. I have no more pain in my knee at all. I would recommend him to anyone.

    Mr Nev Davies has a very pleasant manner and was easy to talk to. The service provided was efficient, quickly identified the problems I had and was able to recommend treatment close to where I live.
