How to Self Pay

Avoid the waiting lists

Don’t wait for a diagnosis or cancelled operation

At OSD Healthcare we have specialists and Consultants who provide private consultations, diagnostics and operations at our Clinic in Hemel Hempstead as well as other private units in the area.

Private treatment is often more affordable than you think and many patients without private medical insurance choose to pay rather than wait for a diagnosis or operation.  We offer a variety of options, including payment spreading and our Patient Service team are available to help you decide which route is the best for you.

If you subsequently choose to return to the NHS for your care, we will support you to make this as seamless as possible.
