Tests

During our consultation, I may recommend you have some further tests, specifically: blood tests, ECG, others as needed. The purpose of these would be to ensure your physical health is assessed, and to help me make a diagnosis.

The tests recommended are undertaken by a lab and not by me, the fees for those tests will be determined by the lab and charged to you, or your private medical insurer.
If you are referred to another Consultant/Specialist, your fee arrangements should be made directly   with them.

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. 
Please bring in the authorization number and a GP Referral letter, as your insurer will require that. 
Please note you are responsible for any fees not covered by your insurer.
