Let us help you to spread the cost of your medical care. Paying a small fee monthly will cover all appointments, casework, consultant liaison and referral letters as well as telephone and email contacts and prescriptions. There are significant discounts on health checks and home visits too, and no hassle with invoices. Laboratory fees and injections are not included and will be billed separately.
The health club can be paid for annually or monthly, although the initial payment will be for 6 months of membership.
