About Spire Edinburgh Hospitals

Spire Edinburgh Hospitals has been caring for patients privately across Scotland and beyond since 1984.

We’re dedicated to providing quality treatment and aftercare. This means ongoing investment in our facilities and introducing new services so you can have up-to-date treatment and care in a clean, comfortable environment.

Facilities at Spire Edinburgh Hospitals

We aim to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible. Our facilities at Spire Murrayfield include 60 private rooms, each with en-suite facilities. Spire Shawfair Park has 13 beds.

Spire Edinburgh Hospitals operates a total no smoking policy (including vapes/e-cigarettes) within the hospital or within 15 meters of a hospital building.  We thank you for your co-operation.

How to pay for your treatment at Spire Edinburgh Hospitals

Our private hospitals welcome all patients and our inclusive prices and payment plans make it easy and affordable, even if you don’t have medical insurance.

We accept payment by credit card (not American Express), debit card or bankers’ draft. Spire Edinburgh Hospitals does not accept cash.

We offer easy booking and flexible appointment times to suit you so you don’t have to wait to get the treatment you need.


Spire Murrayfield Hospital

At Murrayfield we operate an open visitors policy between the hours of 9am - 9pm, every day of the year. If a friend or family member accompanies you into hospital they are welcome to remain in your room or in the ward’s visitor waiting room while you have your procedure.

Visitors may be asked to leave your room if your nurse feels you need to rest or while they undertake clinical duties within your room.

Spire Shawfair Park Hospital

A stay at Shawfair Park usually lasts 3 - 4 hours, therefore those accompanying you are often advised to go home, if they are able to. Your friend or family member will be contacted when you are ready for discharge from the ward.


At Spire Edinburgh Hospitals, we strive to recognise and support the needs of every individual. Our hospital is accessible to everybody.

If you would like to speak to someone about your needs, you can call us at Murrayfield on 0131 334 0363 or Shawfair Park on 0131 654 6500, or complete the enquiry form.

Spire is dedicated to looking after you for your care and treatment, and will therefore carefully assess you to ensure that we can provide the level of care that you need. In the unlikely event that your health needs change and are more than anticipated, we may arrange to transfer your care to another hospital. This will usually be the NHS, and very occasionally may need to be for intensive care. We would only transfer your care if this was absolutely necessary for your wellbeing and care requirements.
