We have suspended Hydes Belper Clinic as a Covid-19 precaution. However, trust us and together we will work around this inconvenience. Our main Leicester Herbal Clinic will instead answer all your enquiries and continue to supply you with high quality Herbal Medicines which can be sent by next day post. Serene is available via telephone and online media conferencing. Just ring 0116 254 3178 for details. We expect to reinstate our local presence in Belper and mid Derbyshire in due course, and we apologise for this change in availability which is deemed necessary to protect both our patients and our staff.

The Fees


Initial Consultation fees are charged at the discretion of each Practitioner and is usually between 65 and 105 depending on the individual consultation. The initial consultation will normally last at least ONE HOUR, after which a further 15-20 minutes should be allowed for dispensing your individual prescription.

Subsequent Consultations are normally in the region of 50-75 depending on the duration and type of consultation

Liquid Medicines are uniquely dispensed personal prescriptions in the region of 11.00 to 24.00 per week, per prescription (4 weeks treatment is usual).

Tablets, capsules, lotions, ointments, pessaries etc. are charged in addition according to quantity and type.

At Hydes we source raw herbs and herbal medicines worldwide in order to obtain the best quality and ensure supply in any season. We negotiate for the best price only when quality is assured by competing suppliers. We never reduce quality to achieve cost savings. Sometimes the supply and cost is effected by the buying power of large pharmaceutical companies who are increasingly using herbs. The cost of prescriptions, reflects the problems of growing, harvesting, drying and shipping the raw herb to us. and the considerable overheads involved in processing and maintaining adequate stocks of prepared tincture. Unlike many herbalists we manufacture our own high quality medicines to ensure a consistant quality and strength. Hydes medicines are unique and only available from us after a consultation. We do not supply other herbalists, third parties or retail outlets.

Specific investigations or test fees are charged additionally, only if required these and you will be asked to authorise such charges in advance. Most tests, e.g. Cholesterol, Food Intolerance, Urine can be performed on-site during your visit but some tests, e.g. full blood testing are processed overnight by our laboratory services from samples taken at the clinic.

Service Charges (including Postage/Packaging/Insurance) are incurred only if medicines are posted. If there is any damage or loss in postage you are insured for complete no-quibble replacement at no further cost. We aim for next day delivery.

VAT is charged at the prevailing rate (currently 20%). Please be aware that we are obliged to apply this to all medicines and services. This is additional to the costs stated above and will be identified on invoices and receipts.

Method of Payment

We accept cash, cheques, and credit/debit cards at the clinic. For settlement of postal invoices please send a cheque or phone reception and pay directly by credit/debit card. Please ask reception for payment details if you require standing orders, bank transfers, or an internet banking BACS payments.
