The Nuffield Health Promise
Our unique offering to patients who are paying for themselves. The Nuffield Health Promise is our pledge to our patients, where we ensure that you receive a clear and transparent price for your treatment, the very best in clinical care, and with no limits on your care.
Our Pricing Promise
Our prices will always be totally transparent and when you are quoted an all-inclusive procedure price it will be inclusive of all costs – with no hidden surprises.*
If you find an alternative private hospital in your local area offering a better price for the same procedure, sold with the same service conditions, we’ll lower our price to equal it.**
Our Treatment Promise
We promise to guide and support you through every stage of your treatment at Nuffield Health. You will be looked after throughout by your Consultant. At the same time, our matrons will ensure you receive the highest standard of compassionate and professional care.
Our Follow-up Promise
Our relationship with you doesn’t end when you walk out of one of our hospitals. As a Nuffield Health patient, subject to the clinical needs related to your procedure, there are no time limits on your aftercare.***
We can make this Promise
because Nuffield Health is a not-for-profit organisation. We don’t have
shareholders, which means we can reinvest any surplus we make into continually
improving patient care.
Your Nuffield Health Hospital treatment price is fixed and includes everything you need, so there are no hidden surprises.
It's really important when looking at the price of treatment to ensure your quote is fully inclusive of all the care you need, just like ours. Not every provider will give you an all-inclusive price for treatment and you may be presented later with unexpected extra charges.
Your initial consultation appointment and any necessary tests or investigations are paid for separately but once we have determined your treatment you will be given a fixed all-inclusive price.
