Knees, Shoulders And Trauma


Fees & Terms

Private fees

Mr Rossiter is recognised by all major Health Insurance Companies (including: Aviva [formerly Norwich Union], AXA PPP, BCWA, BMI, BUPA, Cigna, Clinicare, Exeter Friendly, Groupama, HSA Simplyhealth, Medisure, Pru Health, Remedi, Standard Life, WPA)

Private patients are usually given a 30 minute consultation for a new patient, and, 15 minute consultation for a follow-up appointment. Appointment times are often tailored to the patient and condition. Specific fees for consultations can be obtained on application (see Appointments page).

All of Mr Rossiter's surgical work is performed using the WPA schedule of fees and fee scales (click on: WPA fees) as a framework, though Mr Rossiter's fees have not changed since January 2010 (many insurance companies have reduced their fees/remunerations since that date).

All patients will be given a quotation sheet prior to surgery giving all details they, and/or their insurance company, may require. Including: name of procedure, date of procedure, surgical / operative code, surgical fee to be charged, name of the anaesthetist. The patient is asked to send this form to their insurance company for prior authorisation.

The quotation sheet is for the surgical procedure only. It does not include charges for: the anaesthetist, the hospital fees ("hotel" charges, drugs, theatre expenses, X-Rays or blood tests), in- or out- patient physiotherapy, or, post-operative consultations.

Patients should be aware that, like motor vehicle insurance, depending on their level of insurance cover that they may have an excess and/or shortfall to pay. This should be checked with the insurance company prior to the procedure. If there is a shortfall anticipated after this discussion that concerns you please discuss without delay with Mr Rossiter pre-operatively. Mr Rossiter will discuss shortfalls with you at the time of surgical planning (i.e. pre-operatively) - this is rarely an issue.

Patients should also be aware that the contract to treat is with the patient, not their insurance company or employer. Should their insurance company and/or their empoyer fail to settle an invoice then it is the patient who is liable for all agreed invoices / fees / amounts.

Mr Rossiter usually works with Dr Margie Rose, Consultant Anaesthetist, or Consultant Anesthetists are provided by The Hampshire Anaesthetic Partnership.

Uninsured / self-pay patients are seen with pleasure under the same terms and fees as above. Self-pay quotations are prepared on an individualised basis by The Hampshire Clinic for a surgical procedure. These may include all aspects of a surgical procedure including - surgical fee, anaesthetic fee, hospital fees, in- and out-patient fees (but not including out-patient physiotherapy).

Mr Rossiter does no medico-legal reporting. Mr Rossiter is happy to give a medical opinion to a medical practitioner resulting from a medico-legal claim or report, but this is not as a medico-legal report. All work relating to this will be agreed in advance and all fees will be expected to be paid in advance of any consultation or treatment. Any copying of notes for medico-legal purposes, or any other reason, will require standard patient consent and will incur a fee.

All invoices will be expected to be paid within 30 days of presentation. Failure to pay will result in referral to a debt-collecting agency, legal proceedings, and, extra fees for expenses incurred being charged.
