Patients are encouraged to check with their doctor on the likely fees that will be charged prior to consultation, as the treatment required and the fees would vary according to each patient's condition.

The above is posted on the window of a local clinic.

I wonder why 'would' is used when 'will' is used earlier. Thanks.

    "Would" looks wrong to me, Karen. I'd expect to see "will" or nothing: and the fees will vary... and the fees vary...
