Coronavirus: Our latest COVID-19 advice for our patients and relatives
Find out how to pay for your private treatment at Royal Papworth Hospital, whether you are paying yourself or through your private medical insurance.
If you would like to use your private medical insurance to pay for your treatment at Royal Papworth Hospital, you will need a referral from your GP (see below).
We will need to check in advance with your insurance company that you are covered for treatment at each stage (e.g. outpatient consultation, followed by day-case surgery). Please remember that you are responsible for the costs of your treatment so it is important you understand the cover your insurer will provide.
Claims processes differ from insurer to insurer and your insurer will guide you through the process. If your cover is provided by your employer you will follow the claims process specific to your scheme.
Simply visit your GP and ask them to refer you to a consultant who practises at Royal Papworth Hospital. Your GP will write a letter of referral and then either you or your GP can contact us to arrange your first outpatient appointment.
If you're claiming on your private medical insurance, your GP may need to complete some sections of your claim form and may make a nominal charge.
You can choose to pay for your own treatment at Royal Papworth Private Care for most types of operations, procedures and tests. If you do not have insurance, we can offer a customised package price. The price will include all medical and nursing care, accommodation and meals.
You will normally be required to settle payment 7-10 days prior to your treatment. The hospital accepts debit card payments and all major credit cards except American Express, as well as payment by BACS. The Trust does not accept payments by cash or personal cheque.
Written estimates can be requested from the Private Care team by telephoning 01223 638818. Hospital prices are normally subject to annual review.
Consultant fees will normally be invoiced separately.
If a company, employer or other third party agrees to settle your account, they will need to provide a letter of guarantee along with a deposit prior to the commencement of your treatment. We accept direct settlement arrangements only with third parties with whom we have a prior arrangement.
