Insured Patients


If you are using your private cover to pay for your treatment it is vital to check the terms and conditions of your policy before the consultation. You should also receive guidance from your insurers as to which investigations, diagnostic imaging and procedures will be covered by your policy. If your insurance company agrees for you to proceed with a consultation they will provide an authorisation code and they may also advise if you need to contact them again before embarking on investigations, diagnostic imaging, procedures or admission.

If admission to hospital is necessary this will need to be cleared by your insurer.

If you choose not to use your insurance then you may of course self pay.
