Private medical insurance

Depending on your private medical insurance plan, you can get fast access to every stage of your patient journey from your initial consultation up to treatment. When using health insurance to access private healthcare, you will need to first obtain a referral from your GP and make sure to contact your insurance company to check that you are covered for your planned treatment. You can book an insured appointment by calling 01273 828 030.
