All major medical insurance companies are accepted including AXA PPP, BUPA, Cigna, Simply Health, WPA, Pruhealth etc. When using your medical insurance it is vital that you have spoken to your insurer and had your treatment pre-authorised. Failure to do so could result in an unwelcome bill at the end of treatment. Your insurance company may insist that you have seen your GP first, although many are now accepting self-referral.
Self-funding patients can self-refer without needing to see their GP. After your initial treatment a clinic letter will be sent to your GP outlining the diagnosis and planned treatment. If you need to change your appointment please do this as early as possible. A £25 charge will be made for any missed appointment.
