All further reviews must be paid for. The cost is £75 per 30 minute review.

All patients receiving ongoing oral ketamine treatment must be reviewed in person by the ketamine clinic Consultant not less than every 4 months.

Follow-up appointments are for 30 minutes and must be paid for at least one week before the scheduled time.
