If you are an NHS Patient or a Private Patient with Medical Insurance

You must be referred by your GP, your dentist, or another Consultant, depending upon the nature of your problem.

The removal of unsightly facial skin lesions which are clinically benign (i.e. not cancerous) is not usually funded by the NHS or by Private Medical Insurance Companies. I am always happy to see patients with such lesions to discuss treatment options with such lesions, and give professional advice on the pros and cons of surgery.

Private Consultations and Surgery are currently offered at Mount Alvernia Hospital.

Since the advent of the pandemic, some consultations are being carried out remotely by phone or video, with the aid of photos where needed.

We continue to offer these where clinically safe to do so, and where a patient finds this more convenient.

My team and I are recognised by all Private Medical Insurance Companies, and do not charge outside Insurance Company rates.

If you are a Self-funding Private Patient

A referral is not necessary, and you are welcome to contact me directly. I would like to keep your GP informed as part of good medical practice.

Self-funding private consultations cost 220.

Following an initial consultation, I offer patients who would like to self-fund surgery fully-inclusive fixed price quotations. Surgery quotations include hospital, and anaesthetist's and pathologist's fees where applicable, which are not set by me. Estimated costs can be given prior to a consultation for those who wish to explore private care, but the exact treatment indicated and thus any future costs, can only be determined at a consultation.

I do not have any financial investment in any private hospitals and have no conflicts of interest that may impact upon patient care. We hold any patient data in line with ICO and GMC regulations.

My time allocated to private practice is limited, and there may be a wait to see me. I am always happy to recommmend one of my able colleagues who may be able to see you sooner.
