The fee payable for your stay will vary depending on the complexity of the operation.
The total cost of your operation will generally comprise of:
A charge from the hospital to cover the costs of providing theatre facilities, medical supplies, accommodation, meals, nursing care, physiotherapist and occupational therapist.
A charge from your surgeon.
A charge from the anaesthetist.
Charges from other health professionals whose services may be required, e.g. radiologist or hire equipment.
Generally you will receive a separate account from each “provider”.
Please note: The hospital is unable to give an exact price. Approximations are based on known average costs, and are as accurate as possible. The actual cost of any operation can vary significantly from the approximation if it is more, or less, complex than the “average”. You are advised to discuss the costs of your procedure with your surgeon prior to admission to hospital. Some operative procedures may require pre-payment of fees.
