Outpatient Appointment Consultation Fees Terms and Conditions (NASH PPU ONLY)
Fees for an initial consultation to see Mr Birdi will not exceed £300 and my fee for any follow-up consultation will not exceed £200. These estimates are correct as at the date of this letter. Should you cancel your appointment with less than 24 hours’ notice, a cancellation fee of up to 100% of the appointment may be charged].
Following your consultation you may need certain tests (such as blood tests or imaging, for example an X-ray, MRI or CT scan) to help us diagnose your condition. The fees for those tests will be determined by the clinic or hospital and charged to you, or your private medical insurer, separately.
If there are any fees which Mr Birdi will charge in relation to any of the tests, we will let you know what those will be.
Private Medical Insurance
If you have private medical insurance, please contact your insurer before your consultation, to check the terms of your policy, particularly the level and type of outpatient cover you have, including any reimbursement limits on individual consultation fees. There are certain clinical fees where a shortfall may apply. We will inform you of these beforehand.

Please note you are responsible for any fees not covered by your insurer.
