Treatment abroad: United Kingdom

Many patients travel from around the world to benefit from the excellent standard of medical and surgical treatment available in private hospitals in London, Manchester, Birmingham and the rest of the UK.

Most private hospitals in the UK will offer you an operation at a pre-agreed or fixed price. It's really a case of locating which private hospital you want to go to, finding out whether they can do your operation and then contacting them for a price.  

Many of the UK's private hospitals, particularly those in London,  provide special services for patients from overseas.  These may include interpreter services, catering for special diets, and doctors who speak languages other than English.
