Fixed Price Packages for Self-Funders
If you prefer to pay for your own in-patient treatment, and do not have medical insurance, we offer affordable fixed price packages to help manage the cost of surgery and care while in hospital.
Our fixed price packages are available for a number of in-patient treatments, as well as for most people of any age.
At our hospitals you can be sure of receiving the best possible care from world-class cardiothoracic consultants and healthcare staff. Our experts specialise in complex cases, and our multi-disciplinary approach ensures a seamless care journey for UK and international patients alike.
When you come to our hospitals, you can be confident all your needs will be catered for in state-of-the-art facilities – so you can concentrate on what’s most important – your health and wellbeing.
About our fixed price packages
Our experts ensure you are on the best treatment pathway as early as possible. As the treatment needs vary from patient to patient, you will need to provide an up-to-date medical report or referral to be reviewed by the agreed consultant.
A complimentary consultation to review this report and any test results you have can be arranged. This will determine whether you are eligible for our fixed package price.
If further tests are required to verify the best course of treatment and your eligibility for the package, these tests are chargeable as a private patient and not included in the package price.
The following fixed price treatment options are available for self-funding patients. Prices start from £2,300:
- Coronary angiogram
- Coronary artery bypass grafts
- Trans catheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI)
- Insertion of single chamber implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD)
Each fixed price package excludes the professional fees of the named consultant and the anaesthetist. Full details and costings for each of the listed fixed price package treatments are available upon request.
If you do not qualify for a fixed price package due to the complexity of your case, you will be advised and our team can offer you a bespoke package to meet your treatment needs.
Prices may vary depending on the complexity and type of treatment required.
What’s included in the package price?
The cost of a fixed price package includes in-patient charges for:
- all medical and nursing care

Your consultant will discuss the procedure with you, confirm their fee and answer any questions you have prior to admission. You will be invoiced separately for the consultant and anaesthetist’s professional fees.
Who is eligible for a package?
Our team will liaise with your named consultant to assess whether you are suitable for the package based on:
- Your medical history – including factors such as:

- your general state of health
- any personal risk factors – such as smoking or excess weight
- medical information including the nature and progression of the disease
- results from diagnostic tests
What happens if you don’t fit the package criteria?
If the consultant does not think the package is suitable, guidance will be given as to what treatment he/she recommends bespoke to your condition. Options will be suggested to as to how to proceed with your care.
How to be referred
As a self referrer you can contact the hospital directly and ask to be seen by one of our consultants. In this case, we would require a brief medical history, including any relevant test results.
Or you can request a direct referral to one of our consultants by your doctor or treating hospital. Our customer services team can advise on the most appropriate consultant for your condition.
