All referrals should be made via your GP or Specialist Consultant, usually in the form or a referral letter / fax

Please ask your GP to include as much information as possible including previous consultation letters and scan results where applicable, as we will often not have access to these.

We will usually ask all patients to fill in a new patient questionnaire which provides a useful starting point for the pain management consultation.

Please bring a list of regular medication with you.

Please contact us directly if you have any questions

We offer a wide range of services and the treatment options and fees for each individual will vary depending on personal circumstances.

We offer an initial consultation with one of the pain management doctors, after which they may make a number of recommendations (management plan).

After the initial consultation any subsequent fees will vary depending on the treatment offered.

There is no obligation to continue treatment after the initial consultation

Each type of treatment has a fixed fee structure which takes into consideration the specialists fee and hospital charges, etc.

If you have medical insurance, the fees are covered by your insurance company either in part or in full, depending on the type and level of your cover and pre-authorisation by the company.

In cases when part of the fees are covered by the insurance you may be liable for the remaining fee (shortfall). If applicable, this will be discussed with you prior to your appointment.

All quoted fees are fixed and include all costs.
