Unlike other private hospitals, by having your surgery with Lindsey Private Patients you have the peace of mind knowing you have immediate access to all specialised services, should the need arise during your surgery. All profits from the Lindsey Private Patients Service are re-invested into the NHS and to improving care for all patients.
After your initial consultation we’ll confirm a ‘package price’ for your treatment which includes all associated costs including your operation, consultant fees, nursing care, accommodation and meals together with a follow-up appointment, so there are no hidden extras.
What’s included in the price?
When enquiring, we can offer a “guide price” for our cosmetic and surgical procedures, as patients have individual requirements and are therefore assessed on an individual basis at the time of their consultation. Consultation fees for cosmetic procedures are a one-off £150 charge, however this does cover all your pre-surgery visits and up to three post-surgery visits to see the consultant. Consultation charges for other surgical procedures can vary, prices supplied on request.
Once you have decided you wish to see a consultant, in order to fully assess your condition the consultant may require you to have diagnostic tests or scans (additional charges required for these). The consultant will discuss with you the treatment required and you will be given a fixed package price, which covers all costs associated with the procedure you require. The consultant will also discuss with you dates when you wish to have your surgery, which will be followed up in writing by the consultant.
After your procedure should there be a clinical need, as determined by your surgical team at this hospital (as a direct result of your private surgery with us) for you to return to theatre at this hospital, this will be classed as free of charge.
Comparing prices? Not all private hospitals publish an all inclusive guide price like we do. When comparing us please ensure you ask for an all inclusive price from the other provider. We want you to feel confident you’re getting the best value for money.
Payment for all self-pay procedures is required upfront.
