I am considering treatment, what do I need to know?

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to find the information you need, so we've gathered a list of frequently asked questions about our hospitals and services.

How do I make an appointment?

To make an appointment with one of our consultants you can contact our advisors by:

Do I need a GP referral?

In most cases, a GP referral will not be required if you are paying for yourself.

If you are using your private medical insurance, you will need to get a GP referral so that your insurer can process your claim.

How do I get a GP to refer me to BMI Healthcare?

At your GP appointment, please ask to be referred to the consultant or BMI hospital of your choice. If you are unsure about what type of consultant to see, your GP will be able to provide advice.

If you are not registered with a GP, BMI Healthcare can provide you with Private GP services. Please call us on 0800 096 2694 if you would like to see a private GP.

How do I know which consultant to see?

You don't need to have a specific consultant in mind when booking an appointment with  BMI Healthcare, simply call us on 0808 101 0337 and our advisors will be happy to give you recommendations.  You can also browse our consultant database

How quickly can I see a consultant?

You can usually see a consultant within 48 hours, though if you have a specific preferred consultant, their availability may vary.

Is there any waiting time for surgery?

The scheduled date for surgery will depend on the specific procedure or treatment. However in the majority of cases you will have fast access to treatment at a time to suit you.

How much will it cost?

Consultation prices vary depending on which consultant you see. Please call us on 0808 101 0337 for further information.

We provide all-inclusive treatment package prices for the majority of treatments and procedures.

We will be able to provide a guide price upon enquiry, but the price will be confirmed in writing after your first consultation. This provides you with the reassurance of a fixed price, with no added extras, as well as 6 months aftercare.
