As understanding the costs of private healthcare can be complicated the Federation for Independent Practitioner Organisations (FIPO) have written a number of documents to help explain the costs and processes involved in accessing private healthcare.
The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) have also recently stipulated that costs related to attending Mr. Falworth’s clinic should be supplied to you and as such a separate letter will be forwarded to you once your initial appointment is arranged.
