We offer a range of affordable, flexible finance packages to help create the new you. If full payment is settled on admission, we may even be able to agree an all inclusive price in advance.


To register, you will need to sign our “undertaking to pay” form, which confirms that you take ultimate responsibility for the hospital charges, whether you are insured, sponsored or self-paying. It also confirms that you agree we can use information about you within the limitations of the Data Protection Act 1998.

Credit card details will be required. Any private medical insurance or sponsorship arrangements will be between you, the patient, and your insurer or sponsor.

All patients are under the care of their consultant who is entitled to charge a professional fee. This is separate from the charges that the trust makes for care and treatment under the doctor’s instructions.

Self-funding patients

Most patients opting for cosmetic surgery will be funding themselves. We will need a deposit from you equal to the estimated full cost of treatment or estimated length of stay. We may need further payments on account if your treatment takes longer than anticipated. The value of the deposit will vary with the nature of the treatment and is at the discretion of the Royal Free. Payment for out-patient services must be paid in full on the day of treatment.

International and medical insurance

If you intend to claim for surgery from insurance, it is your responsibility to verify with your insurer that your surgery will be covered by your insurance and that cover is adequate to pay. The Royal Free is not responsible for this verification. If cover cannot be confirmed by the time of admission, you will be asked to pay a deposit or settle the account in full and claim back from your insurer.

Sponsored patients

We accept direct settlement arrangements only with third parties with whom we have a prior arrangement.

We regret that patients arriving for treatment without the required deposit or satisfactory insurance/sponsorship documentation may be refused admission.
