New skin cancer screening and mole mapping* with up to 20 moles for monitoring^ 30 minute appointment
*Mole Mapping refers to Examination with videodermoscopy with the Fotofinder Medicam which tracks moles at up to 100x magnification over time at different body sites and is a unique and separate service from “Mole screening” offered elsewhere. This is consultant led.
^ All moles can be assessed in the new patient screening. If you have a very large number of moles requiring high powered dermoscopic images for future monitoring, longer appointments can be arranged. Additional 15 minutes of imaging costs £100 and 30 minutes of imaging costs £200.
There are a number of packages for removal of skin lesions that combine the consultants fee for the procedure, the hospital fee for the use of their facilities and equipment and histology if necessary (required for all suspicious skin lesions). There is variation between the hospitals and all fees will be clarified and agreed in advance. You will be invoiced directly by the hospital for the procedure. Please note that pre-procedure consultations and follow up appointments to check wounds, remove sutures and discuss the results are charged separately at the new and follow up rates.

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 £35 per email.
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.
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 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.
