  1. As we are a private clinic we charge for every appointment (including follow-up appointments) and each procedure so that we can continue offering the high level of service, facilities and expertise we are known for
  2. The clinic and Dermatologists are all ‘fee-assured’, we bill within the published fee schedule of all UK health insurers. However your insurer may not cover our charges in full and patients are liable for any charges not covered. We ask patients to confirm with their private health insurer prior that they will be covered prior to each appointment and prior to any diagnostic tests (including swabs and blood tests), and treatment (including injections, cryotherapy and biopsies).
  3. Private health insured patients are responsible for ensuring that their insurer covers the full costs of their appointments, tests and procedures and are responsible for any excess, copayment or amounts which their insurer will not cover.
  4. Health insurers do not cover Psychodermatology appointments or appointments and procedures for cosmetic conditions, cosmetic or aesthetic treatments, medications or prescription items, or charges for issuing repeat prescriptions.
  5. We are unable to bill insurers for Psychodermatology appointments, laser consultations, laser treatments, aesthetic treatments, hyperhidrosis treatment (Botox injections), surgical procedures for non-medical reasons (such as removing a mole for cosmetic reasons), hair consultations for androgenetic alopecia (male-pattern balding or female patterned hair loss), PRP treatment for the scalp (hair loss) or face (rejuvenation), for Kleresca treatments for acne, rosacea or rejuvenation, for trichology (hair loss) consultations or reviews or scalp treatments, or for products purchased at the clinic.
  6. We will charge a £25 non-attendance fee for patients who do not give the required 24 hours notice for not attending an appointment, or rescheduling an appointment.
  7. Our payment terms are payment in full on the day of the appointment. Where charges are not settled on the day we do levy a £10 processing fee per appointment.
  8. In the event that blood tests, biopsies, allergy tests, bacterial or fungal swabs or skin scrapings are required these will have an additional charge. Minor procedures including steroid injections, cryotherapy (freezing), biopsies or removal of lesions will have an additional charge. Please note that any prescriptions issued will be private prescriptions for which you will be charged the full cost of the medication, not the subsidised NHS rate.
  9. Appointments are for a single episode of care and individual patients. If you have multiple conditions or multiple people wishing to be seen then please make us aware at the time of booking so we can schedule sufficient time and we reserve the right to charge a consultation fee for each condition and for each individual.
  10. Patients not seen within 12 months will be billed as a new episode of care, and charged the new consultation fee, not a follow-up charge.
