Recommending 'paying for yourself'

There are occasions when it is perfectly acceptable to inform or recommend to your patients the option of one-off, self-pay treatment. These include:

  • when a patient wants to be seen and treated quickly
  • when a patient does not meet the criteria for NHS treatment
  • when a patient is concerned about cleanliness and clinical outcomes
  • when you and your patient want to choose the consultant they see

Beneficial for your patients and the NHS

Referring your patient privately to a Spire hospital not only benefits your patient but also saves the NHS valuable money and resources to continue caring for others. Please pass on our contact details to your patients who want treatment quickly.

At a Spire hospital, your patient is guaranteed fast access to modern, well-equipped facilities and diagnostic services – usually within a week of referral. If subsequent treatment is required this is available without delay and can usually be completed within a few weeks.

Referral into the NHS isn’t always possible. At Spire hospitals we don’t have referral thresholds – so your patient can quickly access consultant appointments and diagnostic facilities including MRI and CT scans. 

We have a culture of continuous learning, strong ward to board governance and rigorous oversight of quality performance at hospital and group level.

Demand the best for your patients and choose the consultant you want them to see. Your patient will see the same consultant at every appointment and will be in full charge of their care with the support of our 24-hour resident doctor and highly experienced nursing team.

Find a consultant

After the initial consultation with your chosen consultant, we’ll quote an inclusive, fixed price* for all treatment. So there’s no surprises once treatment is complete. Our finance partner offers a range of repayment plans including interest free finance – 0% APR Representative.
