Self-pay treatment

Pay for your own treatment and get fast access to expert consultants in state-of-the-art facilities so you can get back to enjoying life in full again.

Did you know you don’t need private medical insurance to come to KIMS Hospital and Sevenoaks Medical Centre?

As a self-pay patient, you can access safe, outstanding quality care at times to suit you.

For scans and tests, as well as to see most consultants, you’ll still need to be referred by a medical professional like your GP, but as a self-pay patient, the process is more straightforward. You won’t need authorisation from an insurance provider, and you’ll have greater choice of consultant and appointment times.

Some of our self-pay services including Private GP, Breast Screening and Physiotherapy can be booked without the need for a referral. Our enquiries team will let you know if you need a referral or not when you book an appointment.

Every stage of your care with us is designed to give you with the best possible experience. As well as fast treatment with no waiting lists, we offer:

As a self-pay patient, you have the maximum flexibility when it comes to choosing your healthcare journey, choosing who you see and when you see them. And, with Sevenoaks Medical Centre now part of KIMS Hospital, you can choose the most convenient location for your outpatient & imaging appointments.

Clear, transparent pricing

We provide clear, transparent pricing and can give a guide price for most scans, tests and treatments. Our self-pay guarantee also means you can have your procedure safe in the knowledge that there will be no further costs. T&Cs apply.

Self-pay step-by-step

To help make paying for your own treatment as straightforward as possible, we’ve put together a step-by-step guide on what to expect as a self-pay patient.

Patient stories

I didn’t really think anything of the lump at first… I have private medical insurance through my husband’s work, so I booked an appointment in the Breast Clinic at KIMS Hospital. Imelda Bell – Breast clinic
My stay at KIMS Hospital was great, they really couldn’t do enough for me. The nursing team were incredibly caring and helpful at a very daunting time; everyone put me at ease. Colin Turner – Knee replacement
Going into KIMS Hospital, it was so welcoming and so hospitable, within such lovely environments where you come in it feels more like a hotel than a hospital. Phillipa – KIMS Hospital patient
