Medical Insurance

Dr Farrant is approved to treat patients by all the main private healthcare insurance companies and is a member of the BUPA consultant partnership.

Insurance companies usually expect a formal GP referral so we recommend that you contact your insurance company to seek approval before your consultation. However, if you are a self-pay client, a GP referral is not essential although I normally would advise it.

Please note that not all insurance companies will cover the investigation of hair loss (excluded in most AXA PPP policies) and those that do may only cover up until the point of diagnosis. Some companies do recognise the need for a longer appointment and have agreed fees for this. Generally, the longer appointments need to be booked by either my medical secretary (Nuffield) or the Montefiore booking team (Montefiore) and can not be booked by the insurance companies directly.
