My Fee for the initial Consultation will not exceed £245 and my Fee for any follow up Consultation will not exceed £175. Please see FAQ’s on www.ShoulderElbowMan.co.uk website for possible reductions with prompt payment by self paying patients. Should you cancel your appointment with less than 24 hours notice a cancellation fee of 25% of the appointment fee may be charged.
Following your Consultation you may need certain tests such as blood tests or imaging such as Xray, CT or MRI scans to help me diagnose your condition. If the test is is undertaken by the hospital and not by me the fees for the tests will be determined by the hospital and charged to you, or your medical insurer separately.
If there are any fees which I charge in relation to any of the tests or injections I advise you to have I will let you know what these will be.
