Initial Consultation - £60 (45-Mins-1hr)
A full case history will be taken and a full detailed examination will be performed. You will be given a fully explained diagnosis of your condition and a detailed explanation of your treatment plan to correct your complaint. Treatment is usually performed depending on the suitability of your complaint.

Subsequent Consultation -£40 (35-45 Mins)
A short discussion of progress with the patient and appropriate re examination if needed is performed. The remaining time is dedicated to hands on Osteopathic care or education/advice.

How many treatments will I need?
There is no set answer to this question as everyone is different and responds at different speeds, also different conditions take longer to respond than others. The clinic operates a one booking at a time approach (Not Multi-Session bookings as in some clinics.) The clinic relies not only on GP and Consultant referrals but on 'word of Mouth' from happy customers. We want your condition to improve as quickly as possible.

Do I need to see the GP before attending the clinic?
In most case you do not need to consult your GP before attending the clinic, unless you would like to do so. In some cases, such as using your Private Medical Insurance (PMI) you will need to see your GP for a referral. You must discuss this with Your PMI provider to see if they require this.

What do I need to bring with me?
It is helpful if you can bring any X-rays, MRI, CT scans and any correspondence from medical professionals relating to your complaint. This however is not essential. It is helpful to bring a list of any medications that you are currently taking.

Will I need to undress?
As Osteopathy is a manual treatment there is a need for the patient to partially undress. This depends on the condition being treated. Please note that we understand some people’s fears in this situation and all measures are taken to make the patient feel as comfortable as possible with the use of towels and gowns.
