Hi elephanto, I have tenddonitus in my arm and I am curretly waiting to have the injection done through the NHS. I was quoted a 12-15 week wait...I decided I couldnt wait that long so asked my GP about going private. He told me the consultation would be around £200, they need to do an ultrsound scan which would be hundreds and the injection itself he couldnt even guesstimate how much it would be but he said the total could go into the thousands and I shouldnt bother as my appointment from the NHS could come through anytime.
I've had back ones and an akle one done privately- it was £90 for the doctor and £50 for the injection. I had 2 injections but he only charged me for one. So, around £150-£200 but might be more if you have to have more done. Get your Doc to refer you (write a letter) and phone up the local private hospital for a quote and to find out if they will need ultrasound or not. Doesn't ultrasound just reduce inflammation, though?
