Paying for yourself
Just because you don’t have health insurance, it doesn’t mean you can’t have swift access to private hospital treatment. Private treatment can be just as accessible by paying for yourself. We can arrange this for you. As a “Self Pay” patient usually all treatment costs are transparent and covered by a one-off payment – and are more affordable than you might think. Accessing hospital treatment is simple, with our clear and transparent pathway for treatment:
For swift, affordable healthcare that gets you back to the life you love.

Your initial consultation
This will take place at a Clinic of your choice. There is a one off payment for this appointment. The cost for an initial consultation for uninsured UK patients is £200. Please bring to the consultation details of any medical history or problems you may have previously had together with copies of any recent X-Rays and MRI scans. Complex medical problems, revision cases, second opinions or complex or longer consultations, medical negligence and medico-legal reports are charged a higher fee.
Tests and investigations
You may need further tests, X-Rays or an MRI scan. X rays and blood tests can be taken on the day. Am MRI scan can usually be booked a day or two in advance. Charges for these will be charged directly from the hospital.
If you need surgical treatment, this will be arranged at a time to suit you. If you are paying for the procedure yourself and are not insured then at your request you will be provided with a fixed procedure price which will include the cost of the Hospital charges, the surgeon and the anaethethetist’s fees. An additional package of post surgery physiotherapy and rehabilitation can be provided if requested. The terms and conditions of the package depend upon those of the chosen hospital but usually include a guarantee for the inclusive costs of the hospital stay.
All rehabilitation and aftercare undertaken during your hospital stay for the initial orthopaedic problem and surgical procedure should be included within your treatment package. The Hospital will also has a program of included aftercare (within the Terms and Conditions of the Hospital).
Interest free loan to cover treatment.
We can also arrange for a loan to cover the costs of the medical treatment. Our financial partner First Medical Loans offers interest-free loans, to help pay for all or part of your treatment. There is no deposit required and you simply pay back the cost of your treatment with 6 or 10 equal monthly payments, completely interest free. If you opt for a loan for all or part of your treatment then the loan will be paid directly to the hospital of your choice, enabling you to go ahead with your treatment without a delay or worrying about payment. Interest Bearing loans are also available over 1-3 years. The advisors at First Medical Loans can help you to work out what the best options are. In many hospitals you can also complete this application with a member of the customer services team, either in person or over the phone. This is an online application and can provide an immediate decision regarding loan approval. Contact the hospital chosen for your surgery and ask for the First Medical adviser.
