We also offer the possibility of “private to pay surgery”. This means we will provide you with an estimate of costs after your consultation has occurred.
However as a private Surgical Practice, it is preferred that our patients are privately insured and we would encourage you to be aware of your level of cover, if you have exclusions, waiting periods or any excess to pay. Please check with your fund before your appointment.
