Thank you for considering a consultation with Manchester Urology. This page outlines important information that we are required by law to provide to you before you attend. It includes information about our charges. If you do not have private medical insurance but someone else will be paying your bill, you may wish to pass a copy of this letter to them. Please note that even if someone else will pay your bill or you have private medical insurance, you are responsible for paying any charges which they do not pay.
Our fee for an initial consultation will not exceed £220 and fee for any follow-up consultation will not exceed £165. These estimates are correct as at the date of this letter. Following your consultation, you may need further tests (such as blood tests or imaging, for example an X-ray, MRI or CT scan) to help diagnose your condition. If the test is undertaken by the clinic or hospital, and not by your consultant, the fees for those tests will be determined by the clinic or hospital and charged to you, or your private medical insurer, separately.
If there are any fees which you will be charged in relation to any of the tests your consultant advises, you will be told what those will be. For example, it may occasionally be appropriate for a bladder scan or flow rate to be performed to help with diagnosis during your consultation. The consultant fee for performing these tests will not exceed £150.
