Consultations for Hormone Rebalance

Available Nationwide from the comfort of your own home.

To address your concerns about hormone imbalance, Dr Naomi Whitelaw MB.BS., MRCOG is available for consultations from the comfort of your own home, supported by diagnostic testing that can be carried out in the form of blood or saliva tests, reassuring you of a commitment to provide a high level of medical care and attention, keeping you safe.

Consultations for Hormone Rebalance

Every patient at Equilibrium will receive a personalised treatment plan.  A range of consultation and treatment options are offered; the following treatment schedules and pricing will give you some idea of the patient journey.

FREE INTRODUCTION

INITIAL CONSULTATION
A face-to-face consultation is required for all new clients, which is undertaken via secure video link. During this comprehensive consultation (50 minutes on average) you will have an opportunity to discuss your symptoms, as well as be asked about your medical history and lifestyle etc. plus any current treatment or medications you are receiving.

Price: £195
Please note this excludes the cost of diagnostic blood, saliva and other tests and/or their interpretation/evaluation if provided in advance. Consultation charge includes two emails if you have any additional questions for Dr Whitelaw after your consultation. Outside of this, additional doctor emails may be charged at £35 per email, including summary of discussions on request. Letters to your GP and/or specialist are charged at £45 each.

Please note that you are under no obligation to proceed with anything further at this point, should you wish to take some time to decide. If you are under the care of another healthcare professional for certain conditions, please be aware that Dr Whitelaw may not be able to commence treatment without prior consent. However, you are very welcome to discuss your options.

Patients who are returning after 2 or more years without a review consultation will be required to undergo an Initial Consultation.

DIAGNOSTIC TESTS
During your treatment, a number of tests may be required (blood, saliva etc.) which provide a better insight into your hormone health. The results of these tests will be used to formulate your personalised treatment plan and prescription. In certain circumstances, you may be required to provide a sample on a specific day of the month; this will be fully explained and arrangements made, if necessary.

As a minimum you will require a blood test annually. If more frequent testing or other diagnostic tests are required during review Dr Whitelaw will advise.

Price: Dependent on tests required. Please note that the charges for these tests are separate to any consultation fees.

External Results (Those supplied by a patient’s GP/other practitioner/source)
There is a £15 charge for the administration of each external result(s) received regardless of what information they provide, so it is advisable to send everything at once. It’s very unlikely that all the tests needed by Dr Whitelaw will be available on the NHS so bear this in mind if approaching your GP. In instances where insufficient diagnostic information is available Dr Whitelaw will be unable to make treatment recommendations, causing delays and possible frustration for patients whilst missing information is obtained.

DIAGNOSTIC FOLLOW-UP CONSULTATION
For patients that have had diagnostic testing, this second video consultation provides you with the opportunity to discuss results of blood, saliva or any other diagnostic tests undertaken. Dr Whitelaw will also discuss any recommended treatment plan including the preparation of a prescription for medication, if required. The doctor will send you a written summary by email outlining what was said during consultation.

Please note that it can take time to feel settled and balanced on your medication.  For many it is days, for some it is weeks and for others it can be a few months.

Price: £125
Consultation charge includes  raising any prescription(s) plus two emails if you have any additional questions after your consultation. It also includes a letter to your GP or specialist, if required/requested. Outside of this, additional emails from Dr Whitelaw may be charged at £35 per email and further letters to your GP or specialist  charged at £45 each.
* Please note this excludes the cost of the medication which is purchased directly from the pharmacy.

INITIAL CONSULTATION & DIAGNOSTIC FOLLOW-UP CONSULTATION COMBINED
For new patients with prior  comprehensive results. Some patients choose to combine the two consultations, which may sometimes speed things up but it is made available on the proviso that additional tests may be suggested following consultation, which might delay some elements of treatment. Unfortunately we cannot know until the initial consultation has been undertaken.

Price: £299

New patients are normally reviewed at 3 months but if you are feeling balanced on your hormone treatment plan a 6 month review consultation may be suggested.

MEDICATION

Equilibrium is not a dispensary. Once Dr Whitelaw has completed the prescription, she will either:

• Post it to you so that you can take to a pharmacy of your choice; or

• It will be sent directly to a specialist compounding pharmacy.

Price: Varies
Depends on the medication recommended and prescribed but on average each medication/hormone item costs £2 – £3 per day.
Please note that payment for medication is made directly to the pharmacy.

REVIEW CONSULTATION
Most patients will have an initial 3-month review but the frequency of ongoing reviews is determined by Dr Whitelaw. Reviews are via video link and provide you with the opportunity to discuss how you are progressing with the treatment plan and address any questions or concerns. At these reviews the doctor will also advise of any changes to your medication, if required.

The doctor will usually send a written summary of any important changes by email.

Price: £125
This consultation charge includes raising prescriptions*
* Please note this excludes the cost of the medication which is purchased directly from the pharmacy.

As part of our patient care standards you will need to have a face to face consultation (via video) at least once a year in order to continue with your treatment. 

PRESCRIPTION REVIEW
Price: £55
In most instances 90 to 180 days day’s worth of medication is prescribed as a repeat prescription. For those with a prescription requirement outside of a planned review, a repeat can be requested online which will require a review of your medical notes and approval by Dr Whitelaw, who may insist on a review consultation appointment.

LETTERS & COPY RESULTS
There is no charge to obtain a copy of your results however, should you require additional letters to those included in your consultation fee as detailed above or any other additional correspondence provided by Dr Whitelaw, then a £45 per document charge applies.

NOTIFYING YOUR GP
Please note that we will not contact your GP and advise them of any medication and treatment unless requested to do so by you.

PAYMENT TERMS
To secure an appointment with the doctor, payment is required no later than 3 working days prior to your appointment – or immediately for last-minute bookings.
