FIXED PRICE SURGERY

What is Fixed Price Surgery

Fixed Price Surgery is offered by the Trust. By using a fixed cost arrangement you can be aware of the full cost of your proposed treatment before it starts. You simply pay for your treatment in one amount for an agreed procedure, which is provided outside of a consultant's core clinical hours and scheduled on-call periods.
