Click here for general FAQs about Nuffield Health hospitals.

1. What is self pay?

Our self pay option makes private treatment available to everyone, not just those with health insurance. It gives you the choice to access procedures or treatments that are important for your wellbeing without waiting lists or the need for an insurance policy.

2. Do I have to get a referral from my doctor first?

A GP referral is required for some procedures and diagnostic tests and scans. The information your doctor knows about your medical history will be helpful to us and will ensure you’re booked in with the right Consultant. You can have some treatments without a referral, such as cosmetic surgery.

3. How do I book a consultation?

All you need to do is call Nuffield Health on 0300 123 1995 or fill out the online enquiry form below and we’ll arrange for you to see a specialist Consultant. Most appointments can be arranged within 48 hours depending on your choice of Consultant.

4. I’ve been told that I need a GP referral and I don’t want to wait for a NHS referral. Can I get one privately?

Yes. Many of our hospitals, gyms and medical centres offer private GP services, and you can expect to be seen within 48 hours of booking. Find out more about our Private GP service >

5. Can I pay for a test or scan?

Yes. We aim to make high-quality tests and scans affordable for everyone, including people who wish to pay for their own treatment. Your price will include the cost of the test or scan and the report itself. Reporting will be provided by some of the UK's most qualified Radiologists and Pathologists. Some tests or scans will require a GP or clinician’s referral, because of the radiation dose.

6. I’m looking for a consultation that doesn’t require a referral. How do I proceed?

Some treatments (including cosmetic procedures) don’t require a GP referral. Simply call the hospital where you’d like to have your consultation or make an enquiry via the online form below and we’ll get in touch. If you’re in doubt if you need a referral, give us a call on 0300 123 1995 and we can help you.

7. I’ve already been consulted on the NHS but don’t want to wait for treatment. Can I get treatment privately?

Yes. Your NHS Consultant can refer you for private treatment. Many of our Consultants also work for the NHS, so you may even be able to stay with the same Consultant or choose another. They may make the appointment for you or you can simply call the Nuffield Health hospital where you wish to be treated or fill out the online form below.

8. I just want to know prices for now. Where do I find them?

Many of our treatment prices are listed on our website. Not all prices at all sites are available online so please call us if you have any queries. The cost of your treatment will be confirmed once you have had your consultation appointment. Once your price is confirmed, you’ll be covered by the Nuffield Health Promise. For more detailed information, contact your local Nuffield Health hospital >

9. I’m unsure about treatment and would like more information. Where do I get it?

Nuffield Health hospitals hold regular, no obligation, free open events where you can learn more about conditions you’re concerned about and treatments you’re interested in. Book your space at an open event >

You can also find more information about treatments and access expert health and wellbeing articles on our website.

10. What happens at your open events?

Open events are a great way to find out more about symptoms you may be experiencing, and treatment options. Most open events include a presentation from a Consultant, a chance to look around the hospital, and an opportunity for a mini one to one advice session with a Consultant. Other events have a slightly more bespoke format. You can book your space at an open event online now >
