Pay As You Go

Here’s how it works: 

Ramsay Health Care will assess a booking from your consultant and decide whether a fixed cost can be attached to it. In the case of more complex treatments, this may not be possible. For example, where a treatment may progress in a different way during surgery; multiple operations are needed; or the number of necessary implants can’t be accurately assessed, you can opt for Pay As You Go. This lets you put down a deposit so treatment can commence. Whilst this initial amount should in our judgement cover the cost of treatment, it may not reflect the overall price.   

Depending on how your treatment develops, you may receive a refund from your deposit or be asked to pay the balance for the total coast when you leave hospital. The patient or person paying will need to make the deposit before treatment begins and let us know who should be contacted if further costs occur. 

For peace of mind, we will monitor costs on a daily basis and let you or the person paying know if these are likely to exceed the amount which has been paid as a deposit. If this happens, a second deposit may be needed. This could occur if, for example, your stay with us is longer than first anticipated. 

When you leave hospital, you’ll receive a fully itemised bill, which will be adjusted to make a refund or account for any outstanding payments. 


We understand how difficult juggling your life and work commitments can be; that’s why we offer flexible appointments and visiting times that fit in around you and your family.
With our TotalCare™ all-inclusive packages, a single one-off payment at a pre-agreed price delivers direct access to all the treatment you need for complete reassurance. Please see our terms and conditions.
If you have received a lower quotation from another healthcare provider, Ramsay may be able to match the treatment price. Please see our terms and conditions.
As a self-paying patient, you have greater peace of mind that unlimited aftercare is included with all TotalCare™ all-inclusive packages. Please see our terms and conditions.
When you’ve made up your mind to have surgery or treatment, the last thing you want to do is wait. Ramsay Health Care UK focus solely on your individual treatment and care and we know that, for many patients, getting help with finance can make all the difference.
With more than 2500 consultants to choose from throughout the UK, you can opt for a specialist in the treatment you require. They will remain dedicated to your care throughout your stay and will provide follow-up consultations once you leave hospital.

You will receive a priority appointment with your chosen consultant.

*Cancellations or delays in your treatment may occur for clinical reasons, these will be discussed with you as part of your ongoing care pathway.
