Dr Coakley is recognised by all the major insurance companies. This includes BUPA where he was invited to be a Premier Provider. If there are any queries please discuss this with your insurer or our office.

Dr Coakley’s fees are in line with fees charged by his colleagues throughout London and the United Kingdom.

For insured patients: Where possible, the insurance company will be billed directly. Please make every effort to provide the correct insurance details and, if necessary, obtain authorisation prior to the appointment. Some insurance companies require proof of a GP or specialist’s referral.

Please remember that seeing a private doctor is a contract between you and that doctor. If you have private health insurance then they may reimburse you for whole or part of the cost, but ultimately it is the patient who is responsible for all professional fees, including any shortfall.

Dr Coakley’s practice accepts payment by cheque, BACS, debit and credit card. Please contact Hythe Hopes for details.
