Dr Farrant offers a number of different services and the self pay fees can be found in the relevant sections.

By law, all private providers must inform patients of their fees. We email this CMA financial disclosure with all appointments and are happy to clarify any costs with you. Please see our standard Terms and conditions.

Due to the complexity of hair loss, we allow a longer appointment time for consultations and charge a higher fee, which may or may not be recognised by your insurance company. Not all companies will cover hair loss and may only cover an appointment and investigation up to the point of a diagnosis being made. We recommend you check with your insurance company and the detail of your policy prior to an appointment being booked. You will be liable for any shortfall. Please note that BUPA and AXA PPP generally do not cover hair loss and will not recognise the need for longer appointments and unfortunately I will only see these patients on a self pay basis.

Highly competitive packages are available for self-pay patients at both the Nuffield Hospital and Montefiore Hospital. Package prices include the consultation fee, the procedure, hospital fees, and, in suspected skin cancer cases, the histology fees as well.

Dr Farrant is happy to offer any clarification to his report if things are not clear, but repeated email requests for further information are charged at his professional rate of £40 per email.

Insured Patients

Dr Farrant’s charges are in line with the published fee schedules for patients insured with BUPA, AXA PPP and Aviva.

The Western Provident Association (WPA) fee schedule is used for patients insured with other companies.

Regrettably, if your insurance policy does not fully reimburse the costs of the procedure, you will be liable for any shortfall.

If you have an excess of your insurance of more than £200 you may wish to consider self funding your appointment unless any follow ups or procedures are likely.

If you are making an appointment for a skin lesion that might require testing or removal we would advise you to find out if your insurance will pre-authorise you for same day treatment, eg biopsy S1500, curettage or shave removal S1110/S1420 respectively or cryotherapy (freezing) S1110.

Due to the complexity of hair loss, we allow a longer appointment time for consultations and charge a higher fee, which may or may not be recognised by your insurance company. Not all companies will cover hair loss and may only cover an appointment and investigation up to the point of a diagnosis being made.

We recommend you check with your insurance company and the detail of your policy prior to an appointment being booked. You will be liable for any shortfall. Please note that AXA PPP and BUPA  generally do not cover hair loss and will not recognise the need for longer appointments and unfortunately I will only see these patients on a self pay basis.
