Information for patients who are funding all or part of their treatment themselves.


If you are paying for your own treatment we will ask you to pay a deposit in advance to cover the expected treatment costs. Please contact the Private Care accounts office before your consultation or treatment to discuss the amount you need to pay and the best way to pay it.

The cost of cancer treatment and care varies widely and your medical costs may extend beyond the cost of your planned treatment, for instance, if you need to be admitted when unwell. The deposit we ask for makes some allowance for this, but it is neither a quotation of costs, nor the maximum charge that may be incurred.

Your treatment and consultations will begin only when we have received cleared funds. We recommend that you check with the Private Care accounts office regularly to keep track of costs and make sure you have the funds available to cover your ongoing care.
