St George’s Hospital

As a major UK teaching hospital we can offer patients who are either self-funding/sponsored or holders of medical insurance the following:

  • Choice of treating consultant
  • Choice of your appointment time
  • The reassurance that you will be supported in your care by an extensive team and supporting clinical specialists
  • Access to treatment protocols that are not necessarily available to all NHS patients
  • A convenient location for treatment with good road and underground links nearby

We will endeavour to provide a single patient room wherever possible, but as we do not operate a stand alone private patient unit, we can keep our treatment prices lower than private hospitals.

Our hospital may be especially suitable for patients with complex conditions, although we do treat a wide range of adult and paediatric conditions.

Key specialties

  • Cardiology
  • Paediatric Surgery
  • Haematology
  • Neurosurgery and Neurosciences – within the Atkinson Morley Wing
  • Gastroenterology
  • Pelvic Reconstruction Surgery (The Hospital is formally accredited as one of just 3 London major trauma centres)

UK Patients (Insured)

In the first instance: please contact the private patient office to ensure that appropriate pre-authorisation from your medical insurer is obtained before you commence your outpatient appointment/ and treatment. There will be a requirement to complete a simple pre-registration process and an undertaking to pay form.

Non UK Patients (Insured)

We hold agreements with all major medical insurers and will need to confirm the details of your policy prior to assisting with your arrangements for treatment.

Self-funding patients

We offer special prices for UK and non-UK patients who wish to fund their own medical treatment. Please contact the private patient office for a price quotation.

Patients funded by the Health Office of an Embassy

We accept valid letters of guarantee from most overseas embassies. Your health office can arrange an initial appointment and the administrative side of this process for you in the first instance, via the private patient’s office.
