You have the right to choose where to be treated and you can be referred to us by asking your GP. If your GP doesn’t include us on the list of options available to you, just tell them that you’d like to be treated by us and they can still make a referral as long as you are eligible for treatment with us – the choice is yours, and we accept referrals from any location with NHS England.
Depending on what your health condition is we can provide selected treatments as long as your condition is well managed and stable upon admission to the hospital. This includes angina, asthma, atrial fibrillation, diabetes, high blood pressure, Parkinson’s disease and dementia. We may be able to treat you if you have another condition that isn’t mentioned, speak to your GP to find out more.
You can be referred to us even if you are already on the waiting list at another hospital. Please use the form on this page to let us know that you would like to be referred to us, or ask your GP to redirect your referral to us.

Along with all Independent Sector healthcare providers, we will be supporting NHS England by providing essential support to NHS Hospitals during the Coronavirus crisis. As a result, unfortunately, we have to cancel the elective services we offer to our patients. If you have an appointment, somebody will be in touch as soon as possible to discuss. Please bear with us whilst our phone lines are extremely busy and we work through speaking to each individual patient.
