Beneden Insurance
Please be aware that if you are insured by Beneden, although they will usually cover you for consultations and investigations at Spire hospital, they do not cover any procedures or operations at Spire Hospital in Leicester. The nearest hospital that Beneden work with is the Woodlands Hospital in Kettering. If you think you will need an operation, it would be prudent to see a gynaecologist there.

If you are insured with another company, Olivia can register with them in order for you to make use of your insurance policy. Please contact Gemma before booking an appointment.

Olivia is a Fee Assured Provider – this means she will not charge a supplement on top of the standard fees covered by your insurance provider. However if the terms of your policy include an excess, you will be personally liable charges not covered by your policy.

If you will be paying for your care yourself (as opposed to through a Private Medical Insurance company), Olivia charges the following standard consultation fees:

New appointment (30 minutes approx) £250
Follow up appointment (20 minutes approx) £175 (for all appointments booked after 1.8.22)

Missed appointments and late cancellations – click here for policy

Some minor investigations or procedures can be carried out in the clinic or minor operations room and will incur a charge in addition to the consultation fee. Any additional charges will be explained before carrying out any such procedures.

Please note that additional fees will be charged by the hospital for all investigations and tests. If you require a private (non-NHS) prescription, these also incur a charge by the pharmacy as well as the cost of the medication itself.

Listed below are some approximate charges for investigations that you may require as charged by Spire Healthcare.
