A Victim of the Great Vein Robbery
When I first set up The Medical Chambers Kensington all those years ago I said that it would be different.
In many ways. One of them being the ease with which our patients should be able to establish the cost of their treatment. It never ceases to surprise me how opaque and dense some of other healthcare providers are in this area.
We regularly mystery call others to check fees/pricing so that we can be sure that we are competitive. Not cheap but affordable. And always good value.
Dr David West, who practices at The Medical Chambers Kensington, reminded me of this founding principle when he told me about an article which has just appeared in The Express. Here it is "A Victim of the Great Vein Robbery: patients are paying over the odds for treatment".
