If you do not meet current NHS England criteria you may choose to have the procedure carried out at our private Facility, The Cobham Suite. We are aware that funding support differs dependant on the area that you live (currently around 40% of Cobham patients fund their own treatment) and the Cobham team offer you the same gastric surgery options at a competitive cost.
We are happy to give guide prices to patients over the telephone. As prices differ, dependant on the pre-operative investigation you require we cannot confirm the total cost until after your initial consultation.
For most procedures we can give a fixed price package. Fixed price packages include accommodation, ward drugs and dressings, theatre fees, any prosthesis used, pre-operative investigations and in patient investigations, food, physiotherapy, consultant’s fee for your surgery and your anaesthetist’s fee.
Should you leave hospital sooner than expected there will be no refund, however if your Consultant feels that it is necessary for you to stay in longer than expected for treatment directly related to your surgery you will not be charged extra. Please note that treatment for conditions other than the one you have been admitted for will be charged for in addition.
If you need to stay in hospital for longer than your expected date and we are able to accommodate you, or if your stay is extended due to social circumstances you will be charged extra at the standard clinic rate

You will be asked to sign a registration payment form when you arrive and also if you are self-funding to make your payment. If your admission is covered by health insurance, please bring your policy details and authorisation with you. You must contact your insurance company prior to your admission to receive the authorisation to proceed with your treatment.
