Information for GPs

Referral and consultation

You can arrange an appointment with the London London Norwich Spine Clinic by contacting Mr Rai's secretarial team. Urgent referrals can be seen within a week of enquiry.

Please bring any X-Rays or MRI/CT scans you have that are related to your medical problem.

Mr Rai will liaise with your GP to keep them fully informed. You can have copies of the letters sent to your doctor.


Private medical insurance

If you have private medical insurance (PMI), please obtain pre-authorisation for the consultation from your insurance company before your appointment with Mr Rai.

You may be advised to have surgery. If you wish to proceed with this, and you have private medical insurance cover, you will again need authorization for the operation from your insurance company who will check the extent of your cover.

Hospital fees are billed to your PMI company by the hospital. These fees usually include nursing, room costs and theatre.

Consultant fees are separate to hospital fees. London Norwich Spine Clinic will bill you or your PMI directly for the specialised care provided by the consultant surgeon. You will be charged separately by your consultant anaesthetist.

Before your operation, we will give you the information required by your insurance company that will also include operation codes (OPCS) and the estimated consultant fees. When you're seeking pre-authorisation from your PMI company, you will need to establish how much of the consultant fees will be covered under your policy.

Self-Funded Surgery

If you are funding your own private health care we can provide you with an 'inclusive care package'. This will cover all professional fees, follow up appointments, post op physiotherapy and the cost of any complications during the 6 week period.
