In general patients resident within the UK require a referral letter from their GP or physician. In an urgent situation however I will see a patient without the referral letter but I will contact your GP to keep him or her fully informed. It is often very helpful if your GP's letter can be faxed directly to my office. There may be some preliminary tests that I would want to organize before seeing you so as to save time and rapidly deal with your problem.
Private Medical Insurance
Dr Lipkin is recognised by all major private health insurance companies in the UK.
Patients with private medical insurance must contact their insurance company prior to the appointment in order to obtain a pre-authorisation code or claim number.
We will send the patient's invoice directly to an insurer only if a pre-authorisation code is provided prior to the consultation.
Please note, however, that any payment made by an insurer is considered to be a contribution towards the cost of treatment, but the responsibility for payment lies with the patient.
It is therefore imperative that the exact level of cover and any potential shortfall, if any (for which the patient will be liable) is established at the outset.
Insured patients are politely requested to leave their credit or debit card details with the practice so that any shortfall or excess may be deducted after the insurer has made its contribution.
Please note that prior to any subsequent consultations patients should contact their insurance company for confirmation of entitlement to benefit and to obtain a corresponding authorisation code or claim number.
Self-funding patients and patients with international insurance policies (excluding BUPA International) are kindly requested to settle their account with us at the time of consultation – all major debit and credit cards are accepted (except for American Express).
Dr Lipkin is an honorary consultant cardiologist and honorary senior lecturer at the Royal Free Hospital, London.
