Our connection with the Armed Forces dates back to our founding in 1899 as a hospital for officers returning from the Second Boer War. We would like to reassure you that our commitment to help veterans who are unable to receive treatment in a timely fashion remains as strong now as throughout our 120-year history.
All Service or ex-Service Personnel (including reserves) without medical insurance are entitled to a 20% discount on their hospital bill. This is regardless of rank or length of service. It also extends to their present or ex-spouses/civil partners and includes widowers and widows. If this applies to you, please inform your consultant’s secretary or the hospital when booking your appointment or treatment.
Please note the 20% discount does not apply to consultant fees.
You will need to provide proof of service.
If you are a spouse, civil partner, widow, widower or ex spouse/civil partner you will also need to provide a marriage/civil partnership certificate.
You may also be eligible for a means-tested grant from The Military Grants Fund, which can cover up to 100% of your hospital fees.
“I was treated like a friend, not a patient. What they’re doing…is life-changing.”
