Funding your care
Our agreements with leading medical insurers as well as the smaller insurance groups enable us to offer the majority of services and treatments to their policy holders.
You will need to contact your insurance company initially to discuss the planned treatment and any limitations on your policy.
We will then confirm the treatment is authorised and will arrange to bill the insurance company on your behalf so you don’t need to worry.
We will keep in regular contact with the insurer during your stay, advising them of any changes in your care or treatment and will notify you if the limits of your policy are of concern in any regard; this will allow us to discuss options with you.
If you are considering private treatment but don’t have medical insurance, we will be happy to provide you with a guide price to help you decide if paying for your own treatment could be an option be for you.
If you have already made that decision in conjunction with one of our consultants, we will be able to provide you with a more detailed cost depending on which payment option would suit you best.
The options currently available would be either a pay-as-you-go (self-funding) option, which offers you maximum flexibility, or a fixed-price (all-inclusive) option, which can offer the ultimate reassurance and financial control.
This fixed-price option may not be suitable for those with more complex health histories but we are happy to discuss that with you in detail.
Whatever you decide, we will work with you, taking account of your personal financial considerations to ensure we offer you the best support and most reassuring experience.
Please be reassured that your clinical well-being and safety will remain our priority at all times.
If you come into hospital unexpectedly and would like to be admitted or transferred to one of the private units, one of our team will be happy to discuss options with you, either as an insured patient or on a self-funding basis.
Please contact the team directly or ask a member of staff to call us on your behalf.
Please remember that as well as being cared for in a hospital that considers patient safety its highest priority, all the income generated from private patient care and treatment is invested back into front line services within the Trust that benefit all patients.
