Please note that if you have a minor procedure, such as removal of a skin lesion, a clinic fee will be payable to The Medical Chambers Kensington in addition to Professor Bunker's fee.

This fee varies from procedure to procedure and our Administration and Reception Team will be able to tell you the amount payable for your procedure. A pathology fee will be payable if we send a sample to a laboratory for analysis.

If you are insured by BUPA, AXA-PPP or another insurance company with which we have a direct settlement agreement, we will invoice your Insurer for these clinic/pathology fees provided that you have given us your pre-authorisation number.

If we do not have a direct settlement agreement with your Insurer, or you are self paying, we will ask you to pay these fees at the time of your appointment.

We arrived early and were both immediately able to see Prof Bunker which was wonderful. Prof Bunker is not only a very thorough doctor, but puts personal feeling into his consultations and offers very good advice.
