NHS patients

At Practice Plus Group, any NHS patient in need of our services is welcome.

NHS patients

You can be treated at any one of our 10 hospitals regardless of location and existing health conditions – as long as it’s safe for us to treat you. It is your choice where you go to be treated in England. Patient choice is a legal right for all NHS patients.

If you require treatment you should be offered a choice of hospitals and services by your GP – this can include private hospitals. One of the main reasons that patients may ask to switch hospitals is NHS waiting times for operations. If your closest hospital waiting list is unsatisfactory, you can switch to a different one. You can ask to be referred to a different hospital if you have to wait longer than 18 weeks for non-urgent treatment.

If you would like to choose one of Practice Plus Group’s hospitals for your treatment, simply follow our step-by-step guide on how to get referred and if you have any questions please do take a look at our FAQs from patients. If you don’t find what you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact us with any queries you may have.

Knee surgery, Plymouth – leading an active life once again

Thanks for performing total knee replacement on me. Due to your excellent skills I am improving daily and leading an active life once again!

Hip surgery, Shepton Mallet – we have saved £6,500

My wife had a total hip replacement yesterday at Practice Plus Group Hospital, Shepton Mallet. They were absolutely brilliant and if like me you maybe needing surgery but on a long waiting list and considering going private, they are definitely worth getting a quote from. We have saved £6,500 by going to them and not another private hospital. Her consultation was 27th May, operation 13th June, home on 14th.

Hip surgery, Barlborough – I would recommend Practice Plus Group without a shadow of a doubt

I was particularly pleased with how well-mannered and attentive everyone was. I had my hip replacement operation at 11.30am and when I came out of surgery, a meal was waiting for me. I was told that if my blood test looked good and the surgeon was happy with me when he saw me at 5pm I could go home that night, and that’s what happened. It was seamless.

Knee replacement, Southampton – absolutely wonderful

I had a knee replacement in May 2022. I have to say that all of the staff from the consultant, the nursing staff and the entire team were absolutely wonderful.

Knee surgery, Barlborough – amazing facility

This was my 2nd time as an inpatient at Barlborough for knee replacement surgery and in my opinion you couldn’t have this surgery at a better place. It is truly outstanding.
