Self Funding Patients

Olivia accepts patients who wish to fund their own care with out the need for a GP referral. 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 whether the appointment is face to face or virtual:

New appointment (30 minutes approx) £250
Follow up appointment (20 minutes approx) £175

If you are not currently insured, there is little point in taking out a policy just before you are seen as most insurers will not cover you for pre-existing conditions and therefore you will not be covered by the policy for your current problem.

Insured Patients

Olivia is registered with the following Medical Insurance companies and you won’t be charged additional costs for appointments or procedures (unless you have an excess to pay with your policy):

AXA PPP / CS Healthcare / Simply health / WPA / The Exeter / Vitality Pru

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.

Please note that from 31st December 2023, Cigna will no longer be servicing any UK Employer Health Medical products business.

Unfortunately Olivia has had to discontinue working with the following Private Medical Insurance Companies:

Pru Health / Aviva / BUPA / Beneden

These insurers pay their surgeons and anaesthetists very significantly reduced fees compared to other medical insurance providers, which can be up to 67% less for some procedures which makes it no longer a viable option to continue working with them. BUPA have also stipulated that Olivia can’t operate with one of her usual anaesthetists, Dr Sadler, as he is no longer fee-assured either and has been excluded from looking after BUPA patients. It is obviously not possible to switch anaesthetists just for BUPA patients and Olivia prefers to continue working with her established, safe team.

If you are insured with any of these insurance companies, Olivia will still be able to see you but you will not be able to claim through your insurance and will be charged as a self-funding patient. Please contact Gemma before booking your appointment and she will be able to advise you of the costs liable.

INVESTIGATIONS AND PROCEDURES

Some minor investigations or procedures can be carried out in the clinic or minor operations room and will incur a charge (if not covered by insurance), in addition to the consultation fee. Any additional charges will be explained before carrying them out.

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. These charges may be subject to change by Spire and are provided to you as a rough guide. If you wish to know exact costs these can be requested from Customer Services at Spire Healthcare.
