Private hospital prices in the UK – FAQs

Not quite found what you’re looking for? Our commonly asked pricing questions could help!

The cost of private surgeries in the UK can vary widely depending on factors. These include the following:

  • type of surgery
  • complexity of the procedure
  • location of the treatment centre
  • surgeon fees.

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.

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.

Cataract surgery, Devizes – cannot fault the care and attention

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.
