Make an appointment
If you are seeing Mr Bankes for the first time or have a new hip problem we do require a referral letter.
Please email a pdf of the referral to or send the letter to The Fortius Clinic appointments office at 17 Fitzhardinge Street, London, W1H 6EQ.  

Mr Bankes will review the letter to identify whether scans and X-rays are available and arrange further imaging studies as necessary. You will then be invited to book an appointment.
There is huge variation in the amount of cover provided by private medical insurance policies with some having restrictions on where you can have treatment and by whom.
If you are using your private medical insurance it is your responsibility to ensure that you have cover in place for your treatment and you are personally responsible for covering the cost of any shortfalls.
For this reason it is vital that you contact your insurance company prior to booking your appointment to check that your policy covers Mr Bankes and the hospitals where he practices, namely:  

The London Clinic, 20 Devonshire Place, London, W1G 6BW

Fortius Clinic, 17 Fitzhardinge Street, London, W1H 6EQ

Fortius Surgical Centre, 18 Bentinck Street, London W1U 2EU
Only your insurance company can give you this information. 
At the time of booking your appointment you will be asked to give your insurance details, membership and authorisation number.  If you are unable to do this you will be treated as a self-pay patient and asked to settle your bill directly at the point of treatment.
