If you are funding your treatment yourself, you are advised to contact the consultant via their private secretary to discuss the cost of an appointment. Fees vary between consultants and depending on the type of appointment required. Typically, fees can vary between £150 and £385.
Can I use my insurance?
The Queen Square Private Consulting Rooms are recognised by all major UK based insurers. We would always recommend that you contact your health insurer prior to making an appointment to ensure that the cost of your appointment will be covered. Insurance provider contact details can be found in the ‘How to Pay’ section of this website. When you attend your appointment, please bring your insurance details including the authorisation number with you so that we can liaise with your insurer on your behalf.

How long will my appointment last?
The duration of your appointment will depend on a number of factors. A first consultation may take up to one hour, although follow up appointments are usually shorter.
Can I bring someone in with me?
At the discretion of the consultant, you are welcome to bring a friend or relative in with you if you would prefer to have someone in the room with you.
Can you organise an interpreter for me?
If you require an interpreter to be present at any of your appointments, you are advised to discuss your requirements with the private secretary of the consultant you are seeing. It is preferable to arrange an independent interpreter where possible so that your discussion with the consultant is interpreted in a professional, and impartial manner. The Queen Square Private Consulting Rooms are able to assist in arranging an interpreter if you require help. Please call 020 344 88948 to discuss your requirements.

If you need to cancel your appointment, please contact the Consulting Rooms direct on 020 344 88948. We may still charge for appointments which are not cancelled with prior warning.
