Treatment & Pricing

Treatment and Pricing

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

FREE 15 MINUTE CONSULTATION
If you would like to know more about how we can help to restore your hormone balance please click here.

FIRST CONSULTATION (NEW PATIENT)
As a new patient we require a face to face consultation in clinic with our doctor. During this comprehensive 40-minute consultation you will have an opportunity to discuss your symptoms and outcome expectations as well as be asked about your medical history and any current treatment/medications you are receiving.

Price: £195
Please note this excludes the cost of diagnostic blood, saliva, pelvic ultrasound scan and other tests. Consultation charge includes up to two further emails if you have any additional questions after your consultation. Outside of this additional email will be charged at £10 per email.

Please note that you are under no obligation to proceed further with treatment 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 we may not be able to commence treatment without prior consent. However, you are very welcome to come along to discuss your options.

Patients who are returning after 2 or more years without a review consultation will be required to undergo a 40-minute ‘First Consultation’.

DIAGNOSTIC TESTS
During your treatment at the clinic, your doctor may require a number of tests (blood, saliva, pelvic ultrasound scan etc.) to enable them to get 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.

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

FOLLOW UP CONSULTATION (NEW PATIENT)
For new patients that have had an initial consultation, the follow up 20-minute consultation appointment (in clinic or by telephone) provides you with the opportunity to discuss with the doctor the results of blood, saliva or any other diagnostic tests such as pelvic ultrasound scan undertaken (see above for further details on diagnostic tests). The doctor will also discuss any recommended treatment plan including the preparation of a prescription for medication (usually 3 months), if required. The doctor will send you a written summary (usually by email) outlining what was said during consultation, usually within 48 hours.

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
Undertaken by telephone usually – includes raising prescriptions*. Consultation charge includes up to two further emails if you have any additional questions after your consultation. Outside of this additional emails will be charged at £10 per email.
* Please note this excludes the cost of the medication which is purchased directly from the pharmacy.

A few weeks after your follow up we will contact you to see how you are feeling and to determine a date for review. If you are feeling balanced on your hormone treatment plan you will be given a repeat prescription for a further 3 months with a 6 month review consultation date. If you are not feeling settled on your medication, then a 3 month review consultation will be organised.

MEDICATION

Equilibrium clinic is not a dispensary. Once the doctor has completed the prescription, they will either:

• Give you a prescription in person or post to you if not organised face to face (e.g. during a telephone consultation) 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 by your doctor but on average each medication item costs £2 – £3 per day.
Please note that payment for medication is made directly to the pharmacy.

REVIEW CONSULTATION (EXISTING PATIENT)
(For existing patients that have had their first consultation and follow up)
Most patients will have an initial 3-month review but the frequency of ongoing reviews is determined by your doctor. Reviews 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.

Price: £125
Undertaken in clinic or by telephone, as specified by your doctor – includes raising prescriptions*
* Please note this excludes the cost of the medication which is purchased directly from the pharmacy.

Please note that as a minimum you will require a blood test annually. If more frequent testing or other diagnostic tests are required during review such as a pelvic ultrasound scan the doctor will advise.

As part of our quality assurance for patient care standards you will need to see a doctor face to face in clinic at least once a year in order to continue with your treatment.

In-Clinic Chaperone
Should you wish to be accompanied at the time of your consultation with the doctor, please make one of our team aware and they will arrange a chaperone

REPEAT PRESCRIPTION DISPENSARY SERVICE
Price: £45
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 one of our doctors, who may insist on a review consultation appointment either in clinic or by telephone.

LETTERS & COPY RESULTS
There is no charge for copies of results. These can be provided by our patient liaison team on request. However, should you require a doctor’s letter, a formal summary with brief explanation of results or any other correspondence provided by one of our clinical team, then a £15 per document charge applies.
