Includes, where relevant, initial assessment, osteopathic evaluation of condition, advice upon alternative options to osteopathic treatment and treatment with me, if treatment is an option.

Follow up treatments

Follow up appointments are based around 40 minute slots but just like your dentist it can sometimes take a bit longer or, if you’re lucky, be quicker! After all, you wouldn’t ask your dentist to keep drilling once the job is done, would you?!

Private Medical Insurance

I am recognised by and registered with many of the major Insurance Companies and as such you should be eligible to recoup some or all of your treatment costs from your insurer.

AXA/PPP, Simply Health Clients from 30th November 2016

Please refer to your insurers terms and conditions.

(http:/online.axappphealthcare.co.uk/SpecialistForms/SpecialistCode.mvc Chapter 1 section 5)

You can still see me privately but unfortunately your insurer will probably NOT pay toward your treatment.

Please note only pre authorised insurance claims can be accepted.

Osteopathy at your Home in the Office or an On-site Visit 2019

Please feel free to inquire and ask for an estimate of cost. I’ve been doing this for a long time and can give you a rough idea of what it will cost and what you can expect from a treatment also it avoids embarrassment on both sides.
