Paying For Your Own Treatment

You don’t need medical insurance to get treated privately at New Victoria Hospital. Many of our patients choose to pay for their own treatment. We try to make the process as simple as possible and, by offering a fixed price for a comprehensive range of the most common treatments, we aim to make it as affordable as possible and to provide you with peace of mind about its cost before you commence treatment.

We are also able to offer flexible finance packages starting from as little as 0%* interest free finance. For many patients, having finance options available can make all the difference to bring a life changing experience to reality and making it that much easier to begin your treatment immediately and spread the cost over a period of time that suits you.

Seeing a specialist at New Victoria Hospital

Most private treatments start when you visit your general practitioner and are then referred by them to see a consultant. You should tell your GP at that time if you want to pay for your own treatment; and they can then provide you with a referral letter so that you can be seen at New Victoria Hospital by the consultant of your choice. Once you have a referral letter we can make an appointment for you with a Consultant at New Victoria Hospital. GP referral letters for self-pay patients are not essential but they can assist in the process by providing important medical history information.  

For some services such as breast screening and physiotherapy you do not need a referral letter from your GP and can contact the hospital directly to make an appointment.

Consultants are independent practitioners and are not employees or agents of the hospital. Your Consultant will therefore bill you independently for the cost of your initial consultation at New Victoria Hospital. You can find out how much this is likely to be from the Consultant’s secretary or the hospital can provide an estimate.

Your Consultant may require you to have some diagnostic tests such as blood tests or X-rays. These can be performed at New Victoria Hospital and we will advise you of the cost of these at the time.

If, as a result of your initial consultation and diagnostic tests, your Consultant decides that you need to be admitted to hospital for a surgical procedure or for any other treatment, we can make the necessary arrangements for your admission to New Victoria Hospital at a time that suits you and provide you with details of the likely cost of your treatment. In nearly all cases we can offer you a fixed price which covers the full cost of your stay at New Victoria Hospital including the fees of your Consultant and Consultant Anaesthetist.
