What to expect

Once we've received your referral, we'll be in contact to arrange your first consultation.

Your consultant may refer you for more tests. This might include blood tests, renal function tests or radiology scans.

Once we have your diagnosis, your consultant will discuss the best course of treatment for you.

Should your treatment require, we provide day case and inpatient services for infusion or more sustained treatments. Our surgical team also provide a full range of procedures.

Insurance

Not all services are covered by health insurance. To find out if you're covered, contact your health insurance provider before your visit.

Payment

If you do not have health insurance or your health plan does not cover the full cost, you will need to pay on the day of your visit.

You might be able to claim fees on your insurance.

If you need to submit an insurance excess or pay inpatient fees after a stay at the Hermitage Clinic, you can pay your bill online.
