Private patients

We offer a number of private patient services at the Royal Devon, generating income for the benefit of all patients. This is provided by some consultants and other medical colleagues who choose to do so outside of their clinical hours and scheduled on-call periods.

The income generated by private practice goes back into the Trust's finances, helping to support and improve NHS services. We are committed to reducing our NHS waiting lists and delivering the best quality care across the peninsula. As a result, private services are subject to NHS pressures and may not be immediately available, please contact your healthcare professional for more detailed information about referrals and timelines.   

This service aims to provide the same high-quality, individual care that we strive to deliver to the communities we serve.
