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 - ?600.

How to pay
You will receive a bill for your consultation posted to you after the appointment. Please note this is separate to any bill(s) from the Nuffield Chesterfield Hospital and Mrs Overton's bill will not have been paid by the credit card swipe taken by the receptionist as part of the Nuffield booking process.
If you are paying for yourself, the hospital is acting on behalf of Mrs Overton and your Consultant Anaesthetist and you will be required to pay the full amount directly to the hospital prior to the operation.
