Fees & Insurance

You can either choose to pay for your own treatment (self-funding) or activate your private healthcare policy.

 

Dr Patel is registered with all major insurance providers: Bupa, Healix, AXA, Aviva, VitalityHealth, WPA, General&Medical, Exeter Friendly, Benenden Health, Freedom, Health-on-Line, Norwich union, Saga, PHC & Police Mutual.

 

 

 

 

He provides a fee-assured service, meaning that the structure for consultation, tests and treatments is covered by the insurance company. Some providers have an excess charge so it is worth checking with them to see what your policy covers. 

Dr Patel is also happy to see international patients once requirements are clarified.  

We appreciate that it is not always possible to attend an appointment in person due to geographical constraints.  There is now the option of a virtual/video consultation which can be conducted from the comfort of your own home.  It will be undertaken at a mutually convenient time.  Although physical examination and certain tests are not possible, it will provide the opportunity for a diagnosis for your symptoms and/or arrangement of further tests (if needed) at a later timepoint.  Dr Patel uses video conferencing (via MS Teams) which is secure and confidential.  Instructions for use are provided before the consultation.

If you wish to clarify anything further, please call the office on  07391 302022  or
