We can help facilitate private outpatient consultations and inpatient admissions, when they are covered by health insurance, government/local authority or self-funding. Please note the majority of our private patients' services we can provide are for our paediatric care at our Children's Hospital.
Patients from overseas and all parts of the UK can be referred to our hospitals as private patients. If you are a member of the public and would like to be referred privately, please make a request via your GP or consultant, as we are unable to accept self-referrals.
We can place private patients in contact with consultants in most of our paediatric specialties.
- Paediatric ophthalmology
- Paediatric ear, nose and throat
- Paediatric urology
- Paediatric neurology
- Paediatric cardiology
- Paediatric orthopaedics
- Paediatric endocrinology
Private referrals for mental health
