Since re-opening after lockdown we have incurred increased PPE and cleaning costs, coupled with a reduced capacity due to cleaning between each patient. We have so far managed to avoid increasing our prices, but we are finding we have no option now but to increase the price of a physiotherapy session by £3.00 to cover our extra costs. Therefore from the 1st November 2020 the pricing structure for our private fee-paying patients will be as follows:
30-minute initial consultation: £42.00
30-minute follow-up treatment session: £42.00
At the present time we will not be able to offer appointments of longer than 30 minutes.
If you are being referred to us by your insurer, we will invoice them directly for the cost of your treatment. We are recognised by all the major insurers including BUPA, AXA PPP, Cigna, Aviva, Nuffield Health, IPRS, WPA and Simplyhealth. Your insurer may provide you with a pre-authorisation number which we will require in order for us to invoice them.
As in all cases the exact level of cover you have will be detailed in the terms of conditions of your private medical insurance. Some insurance policies will require you to pay a small excess towards the cost of any treatment that is undertaken.
In the event that you have been referred to us following a road traffic accident or similar we will deal directly with the referrer, who will advise us directly how many treatment sessions they will fund.
We also stock various rehabilitation products, for example TENS machines, orthopaedic supports, hot and cold therapy packs, back supports, pillows and self-help literature.
