Private Patients

I offer professional consultations, investigations, and management of a comprehensive range of gastroenterology and general hepatology conditions.

I have admitting rights or practice privileges at Nuffield Health Warwickshire (Leamington Spa) and Circle Health Group The Meriden (Coventry) Hospitals.

Local hospital Covid policy applies.

N.B. A request for transfer to NHS care midway through a care episode may involve a new referral via the standard NHS pathway. This may entail seeing a different NHS consultant, and access to NHS tests or treatment would not normally be sooner.

To Make an Appointment

New patients may request a clinic appointment through online booking, by emailing or by contacting my secretary below.

Follow up appointments must be booked directly with my secretary.

Please use the contact form to request an appointment with my secretary and for simple queries. Alternatively, please ring my secretary 01926 436342, or leave a phone message.

Your GP will be informed of the consultations, investigations and management by letter unless you request otherwise.

    Medical insured patients are advised to check with their insurers about the requirement for a GP referral letter. Open (or insurer directed) referrals relating to certain insurers and funding products are welcomed at both hospitals.

    If you need to change or cancel an appointment, we do expect a minimum of 24 hours notice. We reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee for failure to keep an appointment, or for cancellation at short notice.

    Consultation fees

    The standard fees are £195 for the first consultation (20-25 minutes), and £125 for a follow up consultation (15-20 minutes). Extended consultation may be charged pro rata. The secretaries will be able to confirm this for you at booking.

    Patients who self fund outpatient consultations may be requested to pay the full balance on the day of the consultation.

    For insured patients, the invoice is sent directly to your insurer for settlement. The patient remains liable for any fees incurred that are not covered in full by their insurance.

    Insurer recognition and provider status

    My consultation and procedure fee schedule are typically met by the major insurance providers. The consultation fees have not changed since 2013. I adhere to all other major insurers' published procedure tariffs.

    In addition to provider recognition, some insurers have incorporated a fee-assured or fee-approved status for their recognised providers' contract.

    Notes for members of AXA Health.
    AXA Health have a separate set of fees for fee-limited and fee-approved specialists.
    I have not entered into a contract with AXA Health. I am considered a fee-limited specialist for any consultation or endoscopy procedures performed. Non-endoscopy investigations should not be affected.

    I reserve the right to continue invoicing my legacy consultation and procedure fees. For the latter, I abide by the current AXA Health fee-approved specialist tariff. I have not increased the endoscopy procedure fees for AXA member since 2019. You may be liable for the 20% fee shortfall if it is not covered by AXA Health.
