Funding your own treatment

Our self–funding price packages are tailored to your needs and may depend on the diagnostic tests recommended by your consultant so we are unable to advise a fixed price.

If you are using private medical insurance, you may need a GP referral letter. Please check with your insurer and then call us on 0131 316 2530 to book a breast clinic appointment.

One-stop breast clinic next steps

A number of your diagnostic test results will be available immediately and your consultant will talk through test findings with you and advise you on the next steps.

If tests confirm a diagnosis of breast cancer your consultant will discuss treatment options with our multi-disciplinary team of breast care specialists. If required, you may also be referred for further opinion and care to a consultant oncologist. Subsequent treatment may include one or a combination programme of surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and/or hormone therapy. Appointments for onward referrals, diagnostics or treatment will be discussed before you leave the clinic.
