Want treatment without the wait?

You’re in the right place. When you go private with BMI Healthcare, you can usually see a specialist within 48 hours. We’re here to treat your pain, fast. 

If you’re looking for private treatment and want to see a consultant fast, you’re in the right place. 

At BMI Healthcare, there are no waiting lists. The average time between getting in touch and having your first appointment is less than 48 hours.

Our online booking portal couldn’t be simpler. Select the treatment you need, decide which hospital is best for you, then take your pick from our network of over 4,000 leading consultants.

We’ll assess your problem quickly and build a bespoke treatment plan around your individual needs.

You’ll see the same Consultant throughout your care, and you can relax in the knowledge that our hospitals follow stringent infection prevention guidelines.  

We are the UK’s largest provider of private healthcare, with more than 50 hospitals across England, Scotland and Wales, and thousands of expert consultants to choose from. Our specialists are available when and where you need them, with many offering appointments outside of working hours, some even at weekends. 

The main benefit to choosing private healthcare is speed of access. We don’t have waiting lists and you won’t have to wait a long time between appointments. Shorter waiting times mean less stress and prevents your health from deteriorating further. 

You’re also very unlikely to have an appointment cancelled or postponed at the last minute. You can usually choose the date and time of any surgery you might need, and it is highly unlikely that your surgery will be cancelled unexpectedly, except in the case of an emergency. 

Other advantages of going private include: 

• Consultant-led care and bespoke treatment programmes designed around you
• Consistent care from the same specialists throughout your treatment journey
• Onsite support services including diagnostics and imaging, pharmacy, and physiotherapy 
• Dedicated, compassionate staff on hand 24 hours a day
• En-suite private rooms with TV, WiFi and telephone if you need to stay overnight
• The option of tailored aftercare to accelerate your recovery

When you go private, you get the choice of which Consultant is right for you. 

Our simple online booking portal means it’s easier than ever to get an appointment with a leading specialist.

You’ll narrow down your choice based on the nature of your health concern, and then by choosing your nearest hospital. Of course, if you want to travel a bit further to see the specialist you want, that’s completely up to you. The best hospital for you will not always be the closest.

After you have made these selections, you’ll be able to choose from a list of Consultants offering your chosen treatment at your preferred hospital. 

To get started now, simply use the options above to search by treatment or hospital.

Alternatively, if you have a certain Consultant in mind, go to ‘Find a specialist’.

Choosing private healthcare is more affordable than you think. 

If you have private medical insurance, your treatment should be covered by your policy. Just make sure you have you have spoken to your insurance provider and let us know when you book. 

If you are paying for your own treatment, you’ll pay a fixed fee for your initial consultation (confirmed at the time of booking). After that, we’ll put together a fixed-price package for you based on the recommendations of your chosen Consultant. So, you’ll always know exactly what you’ll pay before you have any treatment. 

We offer two different flexible payment options to help you spread the cost of your treatment over one to five years. In many instances, payments will be interest free for the first 12 months.
