Frequently Asked Questions

How do I pay for my treatment?

The total cost of your treatment is payable before admission. We ask you to settle your account in advance by contacting the finance department at the clinic. Payment can be made by cash, cheque, bank transfer or credit/debit card.

If you wish to pay by bank transfer, the funds must have cleared before admission. If your admission is imminent, then you may be asked to provide proof of the transfer of your payment.

Do I need a GP referral?
