How do you work with self pay patients?
We are aware that many patients are self funding, in these instances it is preferable to have a GP letter, but not always required. We have many self pay packages that provide transparent pricing to patients upfront, these can be found on our website on the fees page. If you have any questions pertaining to cost please contact the practice secretary.
Is there a minimum age for an appointment?
The minimum age for a patient to have an appointment varies by consultant:
- Mr Pisal or Miss Wilson minimum age is 16 years
- Miss Flemming minimum age is 14 years
- Mrs Pisal will see patients of any age.
You must be over 18 to have an appointment at London Bridge.
Any patient under 16 should make the practice aware when enquiring so we can contact the patient to understand more about their medical issue as it may be that the patient needs to be see by another doctor. If you are under the age of 18 you must bring a parent or a guardian to your appointment.
