To arrange a consultation with an orthopaedic surgeon, a patient must be referred by their General Practitioner, another Consultant or occasionally a physiotherapist or other allied professional. If you have private health insurance you should speak to your insurer as requirements vary from insurer to insurer.
I charge within the guidelines of most healthcare insurers although as insurers vary their rates from time to time, occasionally there can be an unintended discrepancy.
The referring doctor will send the referral letter to my private secretary at the Elms Consulting Rooms or to Spire Hospital directly and then a consultation can be arranged. Consultations can be at the Outpatients Department of Spire Hospital Harpenden or at The Elms Consulting Rooms in St Albans.
Fixed prices or inclusive care
Spire Hospital Harpenden has a system in place for offering an all inclusive package price for most procedures.
