Finance & Fees
This is between £120 and £150, depending on what you are going to see Mr Riaz about. When you book your appointment Gale, Sandra, or the Clinic Appointments Officers at the hospitals, will advise you of the fee.
You will be invoiced directly by Gale, Sandra or Jan on Mr Riaz’ behalf. You will not be invoiced by the hospitals for this, and generally they do not take payment for this consultation.
When you attend your appointment you may be asked by the Reception staff at the hospitals for a credit card/debit card. However the fee for your consultation will NOT routinely be taken from this card. The hospitals take details of payment to cover any additional costs generated at the hospitals, but they will not take payment for anything without informing you first.
If you decide to go ahead with surgery, the practice staff will request payment for your consultation, to secure booking your surgical procedure. It is at this point that you can discuss dates which might suit you. You will be also required to make full payment for surgery prior to it taking place. This is a requirement of the hospitals, and they will take the payment for this, not the practice staff. Please note - if payment is not made prior to surgery then it will not take place. This is a hospitals-wide policy.
Credit and Debit
If you are paying by credit/debit card, payment can be made on the day of surgery, providing there are sufficient funds available.
If you wish to pay by cheque you should make payment at least 7 working days prior to surgery.
Should you wish to pay by cash it is advisable to visit the hospital prior to surgery, as this takes a little more time to process. However, if this is not convenient payment can be made on the day.
If you have any queries regarding this please contact the Customer Service Officers at the respective hospital, and they will be happy to advise you.
