Our friendly Private Patient Team understand that you want to be seen as quickly as possible so will offer you the first available appointment, just call them on 0114 263 2114 or 0114 263 2109. Don't forget to bring your GP referral letter with you or ask your GP to fax it to our free-fax secure private referral line on 0800 181 4024.
If you are using your health insurance, please remember to bring your authorisation number with you to avoid delays.
Before surgery, you may be required to attend a pre-admission assessment with one of our nursing team. Your medical history will be discussed and it's helpful if you bring any medication that you are currently taking. If you have any questions or are seeking a bit of extra reassurrance, please don't hesitate to ask the nurse during the appointment.
Then, our theatre bookings team will send you a letter confirming the date and time of your admission.

We welcome visitors and our visiting hours are 9am-9pm.
All electrical applicances within the hospital have to undergo periodic safety checks and this applies to any electrical items that you wish to bring with you during your stay.
