Fees

Timings are a guide only and may vary according to individual presentations.

Please see the foot of this page for details of the policy on charging for missed appointments (failure to attend) and those cancelled at short notice. Please Note – individual practitioners may choose to implement a different charging policy at their discretion.

Our annual fee review was postponed from April due to the pandemic.  The additional costs and restrictions on practice imposed by the Covid-19 situation means that a small price increase is unavoidable, this will come into effect on the 1st November.  Fees shown below are the new fees (unless specified).

CANCELLATION POLICY

missed appointmentPlease give a minimum of one full working day’s notice if you need to cancel an appointment. This allows us to offer the appointment to others in need.

We appreciate that sometimes events develop which make it impossible for our patients to attend booked appointments at short notice.  If you find yourself in this situation, please make every effort to contact us – we often have patients in need, waiting for appointments to become available.

All missed appointments and those cancelled with less than one full working day’s notice are liable to incur a charge – (usually 50% or 25% of appointment fees respectively). If we are able to fill a late-cancelled appointment the late cancellation charge will be waived.

We reserve the right to charge the full fee and/or require payment in full at the time of booking future appointments in situations where patients have poor attendance/payment  history. 

Fees for missed or late-cancelled appointments need to be settled immediately or when attending your next appointment.

APPOINTMENT REMINDERS

The practice has an automated system which sends FREE email reminders 48 hrs before your appointment (giving ample opportunity to cancel or reschedule without penalty) and FREE text messages 3 hours before your appointment. Please ensure that we have your correct email address and mobile number. Ultimately, it is the patient’s responsibility to remember to attend booked appointments.
