Injection fee information for private patients (self funded and insured)
having an injection at their consultation.


Mr Parker can sometimes suggest having a steroidal or none-steroidal injection whilst at your consultation. If you are a private patient you should be aware of the associated injection fees below.

Self Funded Patients

There are two separate fees for the injection, one to the hospital for the substance used (usually around £95 - £103, depending on the hospital), which the hospital will bill you for directly, and one to Mr Parker (£100 as at 21/01/24) which is billed to you via the Practice Manager. Please note that these charges are not inclusive of your consultation fee and you should always check current substance fees with the hospital. 

Private Medical Insurance Patients

There are two separate fees billed to your insurer for the injection, one from the hospital for the substance used (contracted hospital rates), and one from the Consultant for carrying out the injection. The insurance company's Consultant fee for an injection is usually around £50 - £100 (see table below).


You may not always have authorisation for your injection beforehand. Please make Mr Parker aware and you can either contact your insurer at your appointment if there is time, or book a further appointment to have the injection carried out. If another appointment is required, please note that a further consultation fee will also be billed to your insurer.  Please be aware that if your insurer does not cover you for the injection, you would be liable for both the hospital fee for the substance (billed at the agreed contracted hospital rates), and the Consultant fee for carrying out the injection.

Procedure CodeThe procedure code which you will be required to give to your insurer for an injection carried out in clinic is W9040 'injection into joint, cyst or bursa'.
