SECOND OPINION SERVICE

We appreciate that there are numerous options available to patients to obtain care for their ear related problems. While you may have previously received great care from a different clinician or service, there may be occasions where you feel you it may be worthwhile getting another opinion from an unbiased professional.

Our Second Opinion service gives you the opportunity to consult with one of our Consultant Audiologists regarding any hearing impairment you may have and/or any hearing aid technology you have previously been fitted with. During your appointment we will go through your health history, symptoms, previous test results, and issues you may be experiencing with any hearing aid technology you are using. You will then be provided with an unbiased opinion about your current status and be given recommendations to help optimize your situation.

How To Pay

Using your medical insurance

You can use your medical insurance to pay for Diagnostic hearing and balance tests. London Ear Centre are registered providers with all the major health insurance companies.

If you have been referred by your ENT Consultant and wish to claim the test fees through your medical insurance, then you will need to call your insurance company and obtain an authorisation number.

Please note that hearing aids and their associated professional fees are not covered by medical insurance.

Paying for your treatment

You can of course self-pay for all our services (all self-pay only services are labelled on the pricelist). Payment in full is accepted on the day of your appointment. You can pay by credit/ debit card, or cash.

Payment Terms and Cancellation Policy

For self-paying patients, our appointments are only payable in person during attendance of your appointment at one our clinics by debit/ credit card or cash. After you are seen in our clinic, if your appointment fee is more than the amount you expected to pay (e.g. if you require additional treatment such as prescriptions, swabs, or a different type of appointment etc), this is payable after your appointment is finished by debit/ credit card or cash.

*Ear Care Clinic appointments

If there is no wax or debris to remove from a patient’s ears following examination, no microsuction might be necessary. This results in the appointment becoming an ‘Ear Care Consultation’, where the clinician will clinically examine the health of the outer ear and ear drum, and discuss the likely causes of hearing loss and potential further investigations the patient may need. Microsuction not being performed during an appointment does not entitle patients to any kind of refund of their appointment fees.  Being seen in the clinic takes up an appointment slot and clinician time, hence a fee needs to be charged. The clinic cannot be held responsible for lack of requirement for microsuction in specific patients.  There are multiple causes of hearing loss and often this symptom is not related to wax build up.  Our clinicians are able to consult with patients regarding other causes of hearing loss and any suggested further investigations. Any partial refund returned to patients is completely discretionary and is decided by the individual clinician seeing the patient.

Cancellation Policy

When a patient cancels without giving enough notice, they prevent another patient from being seen.

Please call us on 0203 675 9985 at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment to notify us of any changes or cancellations. If prior notification is not given, there will be a cancellation fee of 50% of the value of the missed appointment.  Cancellations of appointments more than 24h from the time of the appointment will not incur any cancellation fees being imposed.

These terms cannot be altered due to reasons beyond the London Ear Centre’s control. This includes: weather conditions, natural disasters, strikes, transportation, illness, pandemics, childcare, etc.

Booking an appointment online or on via telephone implies acceptance of these terms.
