With the increasing popularity of internet banking, many people wish to settle their bills this way. We're delighted to oblige but ask that you please use a reference which identifies you clearly, for obvious reasons.

The details are - sort code: 01-05-24   account number: 38138549  account name: Preston Pain Management Partnership which probably will not fit into your electronic form. PPMP will do.

Our fees are given in the following table, which is correct as of October 2017. We will be happy to provide quotations for any treatment that is not listed in the table.

We do not make any distinction between self-funding patients, those with medical insurance and those being funded by legal action.

Please note that in all cases the person receiving treatment must accept responsibility for meeting our fees in full. If an insurer, or other party, upon whom you rely to reimburse your costs should prove to be disappointing, you will be held responsible for any shortfall. If you hope that such a third party will meet some or all of our charges, do please confirm this with them before you present for treatment.

Except for out-patient appointments, our charges do not include the hospital's fees.

Our standard terms of business require settlement of invoices within 28 calendar days. We do pursue defaulters using debt-recovery services and we will charge interest and debt recovery costs in addition to outstanding debts. Patients who have shown themselves to be slow to settle their bills in the past will be asked to pay for any subsequent treatment in advance.

We are sorry to mention these rather unsavoury matters. Our experience is that the great majority of our patients are decent, honourable people who meet their obligations in full and in a timely manner. We have, however, encountered some patients who seem to feel that it is acceptable to defraud us, reasoning that we will not act to recover the sums owed. May they burn in the everlasting fires.
