The Kairos GP will judge if we are able to take on someone and liaise with the patient's GP regarding treatment. All patients need to bring a print out of their medical summary including contact details for their GP for the initial assesment.
Patients are asked to contribute financially to the cost of their treatment. Initial consultation: £80, follow ups :£50. Therapy appointments: £35. The charity provides concessions to the degree we can afford. Please discuss when contacting us.
