Why pay for yourself?

Introducing Self Pay from Care UK

A simple way of accessing expert medical care without private health insurance.

If you require treatment or surgery, but are not able to access it through the NHS or want to be treated sooner, you may choose to pay for yourself. This way, you’ll benefit from prompt medical care at a time that’s right for you – and with Care UK, the price you pay won’t mean breaking the bank.

What is ‘paying for yourself’?

At Care UK we are passionate about providing flexible options for your care and giving you choice. If you don’t have health insurance or if you have been told you are not eligible for NHS treatment, we offer an alternative way of quickly accessing excellent care with our affordable self pay treatment packages.
