Yes. Many private healthcare providers in the UK offer financing options that allow patients to pay for private surgeries on a monthly basis. These financing options allow you to spread the cost of your surgery over time. Through our partner Chrysalis Finance, we offer approved patients a range of funding options to pay for one-off private treatments.
Private surgery can often provide quicker access to treatment. Patients have more control over selecting their surgeon, the hospital where the procedure will take place and the time and date of the procedure. For elective or cosmetic procedures not covered by the NHS, private surgery can be a good option.
The popularity of different types of surgeries can vary over time and across regions. Private orthopaedic surgeries such as knee and hip replacements are common, as is cataract surgery. The most common private treatments at Practice Plus Group are hip replacement, knee replacement, and cataract surgery.
