Subject:      Self-funded procedures 

 

 

Request:

Please can you tell me whether the trust allows patients to self-fund for any of the following procedures?

  • Hip replacements
  • Knee replacements
  • Cataracts

If yes to all or part of question 1, please can you tell me how much the trust charges for:

  • hip replacements
  • knee replacements
  • cataracts

(please provide fees for any of the procedures which can be self-funded at the trust)

Please state the average waiting time (as of May 2018)  for patients who self-fund for

  • hip replacements
  • knee replacements
  • cataracts

Please state the average waiting time (as of May 2018) for patients who have the following treatments provided by the NHS at the trust:

  • hip replacements
  • knee replacements
  • cataracts

Has the trust always enabled patients to self-fund or has it only been introduced recently, eg past five years? I understand this may be difficult to answer.
