What is Patient Choice?

Patient Choice is a government initiative introduced to give NHS patients more choice about where, when and what time they are treated. NHS patients in England who require hospital treatment can now choose any participating hospital in the country.

Accessing NHS Treatment 

Ramsay Health Care will manage waiting times within national guidelines, offering quick and reliable access to services and providing patient choice.

Guidelines

If you wish to have your Consultation, procedure or treatment sooner, you may wish to consider continuing your treatment as a private patient rather than remaining as an NHS patient.

This gives you the option to have your appointment or treatment at a date and time which is convenient to you and fits in with your family and work commitments.
