The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
Fees can be paid either by the patient, the employer or insurance company but in all cases the fee must be paid prior to the examination. Charges for road traffic accidents will usually be paid by the patient and reimbursed by the patient's or driver's insurance company.
