Private care at University Hospital Southampton

University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust provides services to 1.9 million people living in Southampton and south Hampshire, plus specialist services such as neurosciences, cardiac services and children's intensive care to more than 3.7 million people in central southern England and the Channel Islands.

The Trust is also a major centre for teaching and research in association with the University of Southampton and partners including the Medical Research Council and Wellcome Trust.

At our Trust we offer private treatment to patients who are either self-funding or holders of medical insurance. We treat a wide range of adult and paediatric conditions, and specialise in the treatment of patients with complex conditions.

We can offer you a personalised service, including:

  • your choice of consultant
  • your choice of appointment time
  • a private room, where possible
  • the reassurance that you will be supported in your care by an extensive team and supporting clinical specialists.

We are able to keep our treatment prices lower than private hospitals as we do not have a stand alone private care unit. Instead, our dedicated private patient coordinators are on hand to help during your stay, and can offer general advice and reassurance or assistance on funding your treatment and stay.
