Ways to pay for private treatment at Nuffield Health York Hospital

Nuffield Health York welcomes patients who are paying for themselves, and those with private health insurance. Patients who are paying for themselves are covered by Nuffield Health’s unique Promise.

Self pay

Patients can pay for their own treatment at Nuffield Health York hospital. Patients will receive an all-inclusive price for treatment, with any initial consultation(s), diagnostic scans/tests and investigations required to establish a diagnosis paid for separately. Patients who are paying for themselves are covered by Nuffield Health’s unique Promise.

The Nuffield Health Promise:

  • Our prices are totally transparent, inclusive of all costs*. That means no hidden surprises.
  • We promise to equal any comparable price sold with the same service conditions.**
  • Our relationship with you doesn’t end when you walk out of our hospitals – there are no time limits on your aftercare.***

We can make this Promise because Nuffield Health is a not-for-profit organisation. We don’t have shareholders, which means we can reinvest any surplus we make into continually improving patient care.

Interest-free medical loans are available, subject to status.


* Initial consultation(s), diagnostic scans/tests and investigations required to establish a diagnosis are not part of your procedure price.

** Not including Private Patient Units at NHS hospitals. Local area defined as within 15 miles of your chosen Nuffield Health hospital. We will match against written quotes only.

*** Where necessary, we promise to assist you to receive any follow up advice, treatment or care that is clinically required. Where a prosthesis is required for your procedure, this is guaranteed for the manufacturer’s expected prosthesis lifetime. Clinically required indicates where further intervention and/or monitoring of your condition is deemed necessary as a direct result of your procedure. The Nuffield Health Promise applies for patients paying for themselves and excludes fertility services.

Insured patients

They should advise their GP that they have medical insurance so the GP can direct the referral to Nuffield Health York Hospital.
