About your appointment with Bright Futures Health: payment details

Thank you for choosing the Bright Futures Health portal.

What are our Doctors’ consultation fees?

 Are you ready for a game-changing healthcare experience? Look no further! Our Initial Consultation and Well Child appointments are not only thorough and comprehensive but also designed to ensure your child’s health and well-being for years to come. And guess what? They last a full 45 minutes! 

But that’s not all! We understand the importance of convenience and flexibility in today’s fast-paced world. That’s why we offer follow-up consultations in three different formats: face-to-face, videoconference, or teleconference. No matter where you are, we’ve got you covered! Plus, these consultations are now extended to 30 minutes, so you can get all your questions answered and concerns addressed. 

Let’s talk about vaccinations, shall we? We know it’s a top priority for every parent. That’s why we offer a dedicated vaccination consultation with our expert team. Not only will they administer the vaccine with utmost care and professionalism, but they’ll also guide you through the entire process. The best part? The consultation fee is only £160! Please note that there will be an additional charge for the vaccine itself, payable to the supplying pharmacy.

We understand that sometimes it’s not always easy to make it to our clinic. That’s why we’re happy to consider home visits on an individual basis. The price for this exclusive service is available upon application and will be tailored to your specific location. Because your convenience matters to us! 

So why wait? Give your child the best care they deserve. Book an appointment with us today and experience the difference! 

These fees are for the doctor’s consultation only.

What about tests and treatments?After your child’s appointment, there might be a need for certain tests (like throat or skin swabs, blood tests, x-rays, audiology appointments) or they might receive treatments such as vaccinations.

Please note that the fees for these tests and treatments are not included in the consultation fees.

The hospital or diagnostic center responsible for conducting these tests or providing treatments will charge you separately. At Bright Futures, we are not involved in the billing process for these services. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the fees and treatments, please reach out directly to the hospital or diagnostic clinic.

Additional Charges

 

    • Failure to notify us of a missed appointment within 24 hours will result in a fee of £110 to compensate for the time lost by the clinician.

    • Fees for miscellaneous services, such as issuing certificates, writing letters, and telephone calls not related to a doctor’s consultation, are £55.
    • Email advice from a consultant is charged at £55. While most clinical queries require a consultation, occasionally regular patients may receive chargeable email advice if deemed appropriate.
    • Please note that if you have health insurance, these additional charges may not be covered, so it is advisable to check with your insurance provider first.

Do I need a referral?

Bright Futures Health requests that a registration form be filled out by all new patients. It is important to provide the reason for wanting your child to be seen by one of our independent doctors on this form. This will allow us to customize the care for your baby or child before the appointment. Please note that we are unable to confirm an appointment until all the details on the registration form have been completed. While a referral from your GP is not necessary for Bright Futures Health, it is advisable to check with your insurance company as they may require a referral or have additional requirements.

 What if I am self-paying?

You will receive an invoice via email from Bright Futures Clinic or our payments partner Patient Billing so that you can pay online, within one or two weeks of the appointment.

What if I have insurance?

Bright Futures Health ensures that our paediatricians are accredited with the insurance providers listed below:-

Your insurance company may authorise an appointment even if they are not listed above, but
you need to check before you attend the appointment

Before a Bright Futures Health  appointment with an independent paediatrician, please discuss any planned face-to-face, videoconference or
teleconference appointment with your insurance company, ensuring you have an up-to-date
authorisation number and pre-authorisation details.
