Our surgeons are registered with all the major private health insurers. You will need to liaise with your insurance company concerning level of cover. Private hospitals will accept patients who are not insured on a self-pay basis. Details of this can be obtained from the self-pay teams at the Nuffield Hospital (01242 246500) and the Winfield Hospital (01452 331111).
New Patient: £200 to £220
Follow-up: £100 to £120
Steroid injection: £40 to £70
NB: Private hospitals can issue a separate charge for outpatient procedures for drugs, dressings, application of plaster of paris, etc.
Fees for surgical procedures are based on a coding system used by all the insurers. (OPCS Code) Most insurers meet our fees in full. Sometimes there are cost share type policies or an excess depending on the type of individual insurance policy. Patients will be informed of the fee for any surgical procedure in writing prior to their operation.
Most invoices are settled directly by the insurance company. If there is a shortfall or excess this can be paid most easily by BACS transfer (details will be on the invoice) or cheque (payable to the surgeon).
