No insurance? Self pay

World-class private healthcare at very competitive prices.

If you’re thinking about going private, don’t wait for your condition to get worse. You don’t need medical insurance to receive treatment at one of our hospitals and you won’t need to wait – we offer same day or next day appointments. It’s more affordable than you might think to receive treatment from a leading specialist using the very latest technologies, and our prices are very competitive.

For around £250, our leading consultants will assess your condition and suggest the best course of action.

Like many of our patients, you might choose to pay for your own treatment or an initial consultation because:

  • there are long waiting lists for your treatment
  • the procedure you need isn’t available on the NHS in your area
  • you need to clarify your condition
  • you need a diagnosis
  • you want to discuss a course of action

These are some of the most common procedures that our patients pay for themselves:

  • Hernia treatment
    Surgical repair to prevent your hernia from worsening only takes around 45 minutes.
  • Cataract surgery
    Cataract surgery can restore good eyesight following a 30-minute procedure.
  • Lumps and bumps
    Lumps and bumps can be easily managed, but should be checked as soon as possible to rule out any concerns.
  • Endoscopy
    HCA has one of the largest gastrointestinal facilities in the private sector.
  • Varicose vein treatment
    We offer both laser treatment and surgery to relieve the painful symptoms of varicose veins.

When choosing where to receive your treatment, here are some questions you should consider:

Frequently asked questions

You won’t find a private hospital group that offers such a high level of expertise, with so many leading specialists in state-of-the-art hospitals. As a guide, an initial consultation to clarify your condition and discuss the best course of action could be approximately £250. Following this, if any treatment or surgery is required, we'll give you a firm quote so you know exactly what the total cost will be. Our prices are more affordable than you may think and very competitive.

Some private hospitals don’t have any on-site critical care facilities in the event of an emergency. Should you require urgent or specialist care, a 24-hour level 3 critical care unit with a dedicated multi-disciplinary team will look after you.

Your consultant or specialist, an expert in your condition, will take personal responsibility for your care throughout your treatment. Depending on your condition, your consultant may decide to bring in other specialists from our world-class medical teams to assist with certain areas of your treatment and recovery.

Over the last ten years we have invested £500 million in the latest technologies and facilities. No other private hospital group offers such a high level of expertise in such superior hospitals. This means that we can guarantee you the best care available.

We have no waiting lists. You’re free to choose your hospital and an appointment time that suits your lifestyle. We fit around your needs, and treatment decisions are put back into your hands.

We take infection control very seriously and have dedicated consultant microbiologists and dedicated infection control nurses on duty at all times. Consequently, our levels of hospital-acquired infections are very low, far below the national average, and non-existent in some cases.

You'll need to pay by credit card or cheque. After an initial consultation, you’ll receive a detailed quotation for any follow-up tests or treatment so that you can decide on the best course of action for you.
