Pricing & payment

Costs for our private patient treatments are competitive and all inclusive with no hidden extras. The price range will depend on the type of treatment you require.

You will receive one bill for your outpatient appointment consultation, procedure and/or follow up where appropriate.

Your consultant will let you know how much your treatment will be during your initial consultation.

Private prescription charges are not included in the private treatment fee.

Agreement to pay form

An invoice will be sent to you following your consultation and/or treatment. You will be asked to sign an Agreement to Pay form and this will be sent to you with your appointment letter.

This is a contract with the hospital and confirms you are legally responsible for payment of all hospital charges relating to your treatment. You will need to complete all relevant details on this form and bring it with you to your appointment.

At your appointment, you will be notified of the cost of treatment. This notification and the Agreement to Pay form will need to be signed and witnessed to enable us to proceed with your consultation and/or treatment.

Private medical insurance

You will be asked to arrange for pre-authorisation with your insurance company prior to any treatment. If pre-authorisation is not obtained by yourself, or your insurance company refuses to settle the charges in full, you will be legally liable for any charges still owed to the Trust.

Methods of payment

We accept cash, cheque, credit or debit card via our General Office.
