Medical consultations last approximately 15 minutes and cost £30 (£18 for Tibet Foundation members) plus the cost of any medicine prescribed. Fees should be paid before the consultation.

Bring a small sample of your urine (First in the morning!) in a clean, preferably clear- sided bottle or jam jar. The sample should be taken on the day you are coming to see the doctor, before consuming any food, drink or medication. Do not take any intoxicating substances during the 24 hours before seeing the doctor. Tea and coffee are fine. Bring any relevant doctors’ notes and notes from previous consultations with our doctor.



If you need to cancel your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible.  Cancellations made at least a month before the consultation will receive a full refund. The full consultation fee will be forfeited if we are not informed of the cancellation at least 2 weeks in advance of the appointment. As appointments are in high demand, this policy ensures that those interested are able to receive access to the doctor. 


Medicines are priced at £18 for one prescribed medicine, £30 for two, £40 for three and £50 for four. A two month supply is received with each order.
