Frequently Asked Questions
Self pay is an alternative way of getting the treatment you need by paying for yourself. You might want to choose this option if you want to be seen sooner, or don’t have private health insurance. We aim to make high quality hospital care as accessible and flexible as possible, to help you get back on your feet sooner.
We offer our surgical procedures on a fixed cost basis, which enables you to know the exact cost of treatment before you consent for the procedure. Fixed cost packages include all the hospital costs for performing the surgery, the Consultant Surgeon and Consultant Anaesthetist fees. The cost of surgery depends on which procedure you are having. Our price list can be found here.
The only additional charge is for your initial consultation with your Consultant Surgeon
We know that being treated sooner can have a huge impact on your quality of life, so if you would like to explore the option of paying for yourself, please contact us using the enquiry form or contacting us on 1800 735 372.
We pride ourselves on our short waiting times, so your access to treatment could be significantly quicker with us. Please contact us using the enquiry form or calling 1800 735 372.
In order to keep our waiting times low and provide the best possible service to all of our patients, we give you the option to choose your consultant and provide the first available based on the information you provide. This allows us to schedule your care as quickly as possible, so you don’t have to wait any longer than necessary. However, we will guarantee that you see the same consultant throughout your journey with us; they will be with you every step of the way, from consultation to treatment, to aftercare.
All of our consultants are highly skilled and experienced and adhere to the strict quality and governance standards set by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and HealtheCare Quality Framework.
We have a dedicated patient helpline number at each hospital for you to call if you have any queries or concerns following your surgery. You will receive a telephone call from one of our clinicians the day after you return home, and you will have a check-up appointment or physiotherapy depending on the type of surgery you’ve had. We’ll make sure that you’re looked after for as long as you need our care.
