Please ask at the time, so that you are not faced with an unexpected charge.
If you need an operation
If you are paying for yourself, you can decide when it is the best time for you to have your operation, while knowing exactly how much it is going to cost. Should you wish to consider this option, Mrs Overton recommends that you have a fixed price quote.
This fixed price quote covers the hospital, surgical, anaesthetic and post-operative fees. It includes the pre-operative assessment, operating theatre, consumables, drugs and dressings, nursing care, inpatient physiotherapy, xrays, scans, blood tests, hospital accommodation and meals.
The Nuffield Hospital will charge you for the pre-operative health check-up if you decide not to go ahead with your operation. The amount varies from £400 to £600.

How to pay if you are claiming through your insurance
If you are paying through your insurance, please obtain authorization from your Health Insurer who can outline the terms of your policy and cover available. Please give your membership number and authorization number to Maxine or Sharon in the office when booking the appointment or Mrs Overton on the day.
The authorization number enables Mrs Overton to submit claims relating to your treatment direct to your private medical insurer. Mrs Overton's charges are generally met by the private medical insurance. However, there are many different policies and it is essential that you know what your health insurance provides in terms of cover.
Please note that you are responsible for any fees not covered by your insurer.
