The cost of the initial consultation includes an initial report containing an action plan and associated costs of any treatments or tests.

For their convenience, Airedale Allergy Centre patients can pre-arrange follow-up telephone or Skype consultations with Dr Econs or Dr Care. However, it should be noted that these communications are usually charged pro-rata at the standard follow-up consultation rate. The same applies to email communications, if these require the specialist’s comments. Please note that costs may have to be adjusted for more lengthy consultations. The minimum charge for telephone or Skype consultation (10 minutes) is £35.00.

If you wish to apply for funding of your treatment under the NHS you will need a formal referral by your GP and an application (Independent Funding Request, IFR) to the local Primary Care Trust prior to your appointment. However, the process is lengthy and often unsuccessful for methods not formally approved by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE).

It is not the role of the Clinic to persuade other health professionals to make formal referrals or to engage in medico-legal disputes.

Please Note:

  • Settlement of all accounts is required at the time of treatment or on receipt of invoice
  • Payment can be made by cash, debit/credit card (not American Express) or BACS in advance of the appointment
  • If you cancel your appointment within 24 hours of your appointment time, we reserve the right to charge the full consultation/session fee if we are unable to fill the appointment slot at short notice.
  • If you do not attend your appointment, without giving us any prior notice, the consultation fee is still payable by you.
  • The clinic reserves the right to alter its fee structure without prior notice.
  • It is the patient's responsibility to ensure their health insurance policy will cover the costs of any treatment prior to the first appointment.
  • Some discounts may apply in case of long term inability to work due to ill health.
