The Consultation

The initial consultation typically lasts an hour and a half for an adult, but is sometimes slightly longer or shorter than this.  It will involve detailed questions about your current and past medical history, and the events that led to your being ill.  I will explore with you how you react to your symptoms, any conditions that make them worse or better, such as heat, light, drafts, or particular environments that you enjoy or dislike.   During the consultation I will hope to gain an understanding of how you react to your 'disease', emotionally as well as physically.  In order to select the medicine that closely matches your overall picture I will need to get to know you as a person.  Everything you tell me will be held in strictest confidence.  

After a careful analysis of all the information you provide, I will prescribe a remedy or remedies for you and send these along with instructions as to how to take them.  

I will usually ask for feedback within a week or so, to assess whether the remedy has acted.

I will probably request to see you again about a month after  the first consultation.  The follow-up appointment lasts between half an hour and an hour.  I will then decide whether to repeat the remedy, perhaps in a different potency, to change the remedy, or sometimes it may be that we just need to wait and monitor progress over time.  I will discuss your treatment plan with you and give details of how and when to contact me if you have any queries, or if things arise that you need to discuss.

The fee for the initial appointment is 60

The follow-up fee is 40.

These fees include the medication you need and telephone support for up to one month from the prescription date,  should you need it.  After a month has elapsed, you would need to book a follow-up for further advice.   If there is a need for special medicines not held in stock, then occasionally there may be an addtional charge but this is not usually the case.

The fee for a 15 minute 'Acute' prescription if you are an existing patient I have not seen in the  past month, is 15.  If you need a remedy posting out to you, there would be an additonal 5 charge for this.
