Ways to pay for private treatment at Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust

Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust provides the very best skills and standards of a top NHS hospital to private patients and, in doing so, supports the continued development of both the NHS and the Royal Free London.  Both insured and self-paying patients are welcome with a referral from a GP, specialist or other health professional.

Self pay

Quotes and estimates of costs for self-payers are available from the Royal Free Private Patients Unit referrals team on 020 7317 7751 (email rf.privateenquiries@nhs.net). Payment is due, in full, prior to an appointment or admission and the hospital accepts all major credit cards, bank and online transfer, cash and cheque.

What's included

Fixed price quotations can be provided for simple procedures and tests.  For more complex testing regimes or treatment plans, an estimate of costs will be provided. Patients will receive a detailed invoice, itemising all costs, following their treatment.

Insured patients

Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust recognises most UK health insurers and are on the nationwide networks with most (see below).  Following receipt of a valid authorisation, they handle all financial aspects of a patient's appointments and treatments direct with the insurer.
