Self-paying patients

If you require medical treatment and you want to be seen quickly by a consultant of your choice, you can self-pay privately at King Edward VII’s Hospital and avoid long hospital waiting lists. Here’s our step by step guide:

Step 1 – Choose your consultant

One of the benefits of private healthcare is being able to choose the specialist who diagnoses you and decides the most effective course of treatment. We hand-pick our consultants not only for their expertise and experience but also their values, making sure they align to the values of our Hospital.

Step 2 – Get a private patient referral letter from your GP

In almost all cases you will be required to provide a referral letter to your consultant before your initial consultation. Make sure you ask your GP for any relevant test results, details and other information prior to your initial consultation so you do not have to pay for further scans or x-rays.

If you do not have a GP, King Edward VII’s Hospital provides a first-class GP service with some of London’s top GPs.

Step 3 – Attend an out-patient appointment with your consultant


Before commencing any treatment you will need to attend an out-patient appointment with your consultant. The cost of this appointment is payable directly to the consultant and you should be prepared to pay the consultation fee on the day of the appointment.
