Registration and Insurance Scheme
If you would prefer to pay on a fee-per-item basis, we strongly recommend that you use our Registration and Insurance Scheme. Registration with the practice will cost £25.00 and will include the insurance cover described previously (except redundancy protection). It is, however, conditional upon you attending the practice at least once a year for a check-up and having any remedial work undertaken as soon as possible, payment for which is not covered. Please ask a member of the team for further details.
