General medical service payment options

  1. Use your private medical insurance:  Most medical insurers recognise our service and therefore are likely to cover medical care and treatment. However you must liaise with your insurer directly to ensure you are covered by your policy. You will need to activate your policy with your insurer but of course if you are admitted urgently, we can help administer the process.
  2. Pay for yourselfWe offer a pay for yourself package price which includes a daily fixed rate fee for your accommodation and medical care***.  Knowing the price upfront means you won't have to worry about the financials and can focus on what's important, getting better.

Stress Free Recovery

At BMI The Clementine Churchill Hospital we understand that sometimes you need a bit of ex­tra support before your treatment or to help you on your road to recovery following an operation.

With an around the clock treatment and recovery service from a multidisciplinary team of medical specialists our Pre-theatre and Peace of Mind Packages have been developed to remove any worry and concerns you may have about your stay.

Pre-Theatre Package

To avoid the stress of having to arrive at the hospital early on the morning of your operation, you can book an extra night’s stay the evening before. This will allow you the time to relax in your room and avoid the pressure of checking into the hospital at a set time on the day of your surgery.

The price of your stay includes a private en-suite bedroom providing a comfortable overnight stay, with its own TV, free WiFi and where you can enjoy your chosen evening meal (£150 per night).

Peace of mind package

If you do not have the support, you need at home you may wish to stay within the hospital for an extended recovery period. This can provide the comfort and reassurance you need to get well quicker (£500 per night for the first two nights, post planned discharge).

The first two night’s additional stay will be charged at £500 per night and includes:

  • A private en-suite bedroom
  • Consultant led service
  • Dedicated nursing team providing high quality personalised care
  • Two physiotherapy sessions per day
