Do I need a GP referral?

If you are paying for your own treatment, then a referral is not necessary although in general it is preferred. The majority of insurers will require a GP referral before authorising a consultation, investigations or any treatment but please check with your insurers. Many referrals come from physiotherapists and some insurers will now accept that mode of referral.

Do I need private medical insurance to be seen?

No. While most people being treated in the private sector will have insurance cover, an increasing number are choosing to fund their own treatment. There are a variety of ways to pay for treatment but in general the hospital would require payment for surgery in full in advance.

Is Mr Dawson recognised by my Insurance company?

Mr Dawson is recognised by all the major insurance companies as a Specialist Knee Surgeon. There are a large number of policies that cover differing aspects of care and I would recommend you ensure that you understand what is and is not covered under your particular policy.

Am I responsible for any fees?

Whether or not you have private medical insurance my contract is with you and you are ultimately responsible for any fees incurred for consultations, investigations and surgery.
