Arranging Treatment

You will often require a GP referral in order to see a Consultant at One Ashford Hospital, although you can self-refer for some procedures.
You will then attend an initial consultation with a Consultant specialising in that area of care. You may require certain diagnostic tests such as a scan or X-ray if they have not already been carried out; these will help your Consultant come to a correct diagnosis.
Once your chosen Consultant has confirmed the most appropriate treatment for you, we will provide you with a tailored treatment plan, and our team will support you with all the information you need. If you are happy to proceed, we will arrange a convenient date for your treatment. You will be informed of what to bring and your arrival time, as well as how to make payment.

(Following your consultation, you are under no obligation to book treatment with us; you simply pay for the consultation).

Paying for Treatment

The cost of treatment will depend on a number of factors, including:
  • The procedure you are having
  • The Consultant’s fees
  • Any additional services required such as diagnostic tests
We always provide transparent pricing and we will provide you with a written quote before you book a procedure with us, ensuring you are aware of all charges before making a decision. In some circumstances you may be asked to pay a deposit however our fixed-price packages are fully inclusive, so you won’t receive any unexpected costs.

We accept payment by credit card, debit card or cash.

I think it would be unfair to single out any one member of staff as I thought everyone of them should be praised equally. They were polite, helpful, friendly and very professional.
