Cost

There is a cost for our service, which we will explain to you when we call to discuss your treatment plan.

We understand that covering the cost of health can be hard, even if you received the service in a public hospital. If you are worried that you may not be able to pay, please contact the Patient Accounts team to talk through your situation.
