Consultation & Referrals

Consultations

I am a Consultant NHS surgeon and Honorary Reader at the University Hospitals of Leicester. The Leicester Royal Infirmary is now a major training centre for maxillofacial surgery with a growing national reputation. You may be referred as a NHS patient.

If you wish to be referred as a private patient you may be seen at the Leicester Spire or Nuffield Hospitals. You may have either health insurance or pay for a consultation and fixed price surgery.

My main private clinic is on a Monday evening at the Spire Hospital.

How to get a referral

You may be seen with a referral letter from their dental or medical practitioner. You may book an appointment directly if you are a private patient and I will see you without a referral letter if there is a delay in obtaining one. More details are on the contact page and additional information is available on the Hospital websites.

How much will it cost?

Insured?

All the main insurance companies are acceptable and I charge within the normal rates. If you are insured you are advised to check the level of cover which your insurance company provides. Specifically whether it covers out-patient consultations and in-patient treatment. Depending on the individual policy there may be an excess fee to be paid by the patient and this is typically £50 to £100.

Self-pay?

A typical fee for an initial consultation would be £90 to £120. The fixed price cost for a minor surgical procedure under general anaesthetic is typically between £900 to £1500 and more major procedures would be higher. This will include accommodation, meals, nursing care, operating theatre fees, surgical and anaesthetic fees.
