Fees

It is free to see me and any other paediatrician in the NHS.  It is also safer to be seen in the NHS if your child is acutely unwell.  Please only make an appointment to see me in the private sector if you are prepared to pay my fees.  The fee listed below or as paid by your insurer covers the consultation with me and reasonable e-mail or telephone communication afterwards for clarification of anything I have said or for me to let you know results of any tests.  Please note that I keep the self-funding fee relatively low for the benefit of families but it does mean that there is no lee way in the business model for non-payment of bills.  All outstanding debts are chased.

Feedback is always helpful.  Positive comments are nice but constructive criticism is also welcomed.  Please discuss any concerns about your child’s care with me in the first instance or with Spire Roding hospital if you prefer.

For self-funding families, please bring payment with you to the appointment. Debit cards or cash are accepted on my behalf at Spire Roding Hospital.

Self-funding new patient (25 minute slot):  £190

Self-funding follow-up (15 minute slot):   £110 (held at 2014 price for the time being)

Any investigations such as blood tests, ECGs, X-rays carry an additional charge, payable directly to the individual hospital.

For patients with health insurance, please check that your insurance covers a consultation with me before you make an appointment and bring the preauthorisation reference with you to the hospital.  Please check your policy for any excess which may be payable; it may be more economical to pay me as a self-funding patient if it is likely to be a one-off than pay the excess.

Please note that if you miss your booked appointment you will still be charged.
