All our Licences carry the same monthly fee of £50, which covers all the facilities you require to run a private practice.
The examples below will give you a broad idea of costs:
Sessional Use Licence
This gives you an enormous choice of facility and cost, with rates ranging from £9 to £20 per hour.
Here, you book a room at the same time each week. Each session lasts four hours during the day, and three hours during the evening. You select the room you prefer and pay according to its size, location, and time of use.
Dr Richard Smith, a dermatologist, holds a weekly clinic and is happy in a small clinical room. A four hour session on a Tuesday afternoon (peak time) costs £45 per session, so Dr Smith pays £50 per month Licence fee, plus his weekly room rate. His total cost is therefore £245 per month.
For one year, a clinic once a week at 88 Rodney Street will cost him only £2,940 at peak times. At off-peak times, the same room could cost as little as £2,472.
He also has the benefit of using the House at a reduced hourly rate if he needs to see a patient at other times.
Occasional Use Option
There is a flat hourly rate of £15 per hour, charged in quarter-hour units.
You may choose this option if you do not wish to use a room at a regular time each week. This Licence gives you access to consulting rooms as and when you need them at an hourly rate, giving maximum flexibility.
Mrs Kate Jones, an osteopath, requires only two hours per month in Rodney Street. She uses the consulting room that has a specifically designed hydraulic couch. Her patients prefer to visit at weekends or in the evenings after work.
Each month she pays the £50 licence fee plus the hours she needs at £15 each.
For one year an Occasional room in Rodney Street will cost only £960.
Committed Hours Option
By committing to use a minimum number of hours each month you may benefit from discounted Occasional Use rates and pay as little as £12 per hour.
Alicia Johnson is a Chartered Clinical Psychologist who sees a number of patients each month but, because of NHS commitments, cannot commit to a fixed session time.
Therefore she agrees to use at least 22 hours each month, usually in the off-peak periods. She pays only £12.50 per hour for those committed hours, rather than £15 (Occasional rate). Her monthly commitment is £325 which includes the £50 Licence fee.
For one year a committed hours room in Rodney Street will cost only £3,900.
