Private Patient Services
The income generated from treating private patients makes a significant contribution to Newcastle upon Tyne NHS Foundation Hospital’s funds. It is always reinvested to the benefit of all our patients.
First class care in a first class environment

Quality of care
The Newcastle Hospitals are committed to providing excellence and quality, and we have an international reputation for offering the very best in private healthcare. Our Newcastle Private Patient service can provide the very highest standard of clinical skills and nursing care across most specialties. Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has been delivering private healthcare since 1995.
Services and specialities
We offer a wide range of services including Bariatric Surgery (Lap Banding) and cosmetic surgery. For details on all our services, visit the Newcastle Private Healthcare website.
The Private Patient Service works with a number of Consultant partners to bring our clients fast access to a full range of services. As a BUPA Approved Breast Care Centre we are pleased to support Northern Breast Specialists - a multi-disciplinary group of breast surgeons and oncologists. We have regular clinics which are supported by a dedicated private breast care nurse.
The Newcastle Hospitals Trust is recognised and accredited by private medical insurers. We are also an accredited BUPA Breast Care Centre.
If you are using medical insurance to pay for your treatment or procedure, then you need to speak with your insurance provider throughout the course of your treatment. You should be aware of the terms and conditions of your policy and let us know if there are any limitations applicable to your policy. You should ensure you have adequate cover before you commit to having the procedure.
We make it even easier for patients to access the exceptional quality of care provided by Newcastle Hospitals Trust as a private patient. Our staff can give a ‘guide’ price based on the information provided by your consultant.
Please note that if you are not using medical insurance you will need to pay for any tests, treatment or surgery before they take place.
Our treatment takes place at modern facilities across Newcastle, including the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Freeman Hospital, and the Centre for Life.

Please note that unfortunately for clinical reasons not all of our range of procedures are carried out at The Park Suite , and for some operations such as Cardiac and Spinal Surgery you will be admitted to a NHS ward (we try to provide a side room where possible). This is reflected in the fees charged.
