Making an appointment

Appointments may be requested for either:

  • The Priory Hospital Roehampton
  • 10 Harley Street, London

Appointment times are flexible but any changes or cancellations must be requested at least 48 working hours (2 working days) prior to your appointment. Cancellations within 48 working hours prior to your appointment will still be chargeable as there will not be enough time for your appointment slot to be filled by another patient.

Fees

Dr Hakeem is recognised by all medical insurers. His fees are in line with other London psychiatrists:

Initial assessment (up to 60 mins) – £380
Standard follow-up appointments (up to 30 mins) – £200*
Hour follow-up appointments (30-60 mins) – £380*
Prescription outside consultation – £20
Medical reports – £380 per hour
Individual Psychotherapy (minimum once per week) – £200 (50 mins)
Group Therapy (90 mins) – £100

*Price may differ should there be a pre-agreed fixed rate with an insurance company, which may only cover the fee of a standard follow-up.

Payment can be made in cash, by cheque, credit or debit card (except American Express) or via bank transfer.

What to do if you have Private Medical Insurance

If you are claiming against Private Medical Insurance, please contact your provider prior to your appointment to obtain authorisation for the appointment and to establish the level of your cover, including any excess fee, which may be charged. On the day of your appointment you may be asked to pay for the consultation in full, at which time you will be issued with a receipt. It is this receipt that you need to reclaim the fees from your insurer.

For the avoidance of doubt, Dr Hakeem’s contract is with you and not your insurance provider. The fees are ultimately your responsibility and Dr Hakeem unfortunately cannot become involved in correspondence with your insurance provider on your behalf regarding fees. Please note that some insurers require a written referral letter from your GP in order for you to make a claim. Dr Hakeem may be required to provide a short report or complete a claim form for your insurer and will happily do so for no extra charge.

Private Prescriptions

Dr Hakeem is able to issue prescriptions for medication during your consultation without charge. However, if a request for a prescription is made at a time other than during a consultation, a £20 fee will be charged for Dr Hakeem’s time and the administrative costs involved.

Dr Hakeem is happy to write to your NHS General Practitioner to request he/she takes over the prescribing of your medication should you so wish. There are a small number of new medications, which NHS GP’s are reluctant to prescribe and therefore may need to continue to be prescribed by Dr Hakeem.
