Combining the specialist expertise of our consultants with our continual investment in the very latest medical technology, patients visiting us benefit from immediate access to personalised medicine and care across our group of internationally-renowned hospitals, specialist clinics, outpatient and diagnostics centres and private GP services within London and across the UK.

Private healthcare costs: what is self-pay?

You don’t need health insurance to be seen quickly. If you are looking for a diagnosis or treatment and don’t want to wait, all of our private healthcare services - from private GP appointments through to surgery and aftercare - can be paid for as and when you need them.

Above all, it’s incredibly important to us that we make your journey with HCA UK feel as seamless as possible. If you are paying privately, we take away any uncertainty you may have about your healthcare costs by providing clear and transparent quotes and outlining below what’s included and excluded within your self-pay package.
