You or your relatives might prefer to be treated privately. As a private patient with Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust, you will have all the convenience and comfort of private care at the same time enjoying the high-quality facilities and expertise of a top-class teaching hospital.
All income from private patients is directed into improving our hospital facilities. This benefits all of our patients, NHS and private alike.
As a leading provider of specialist services we are proud to undertake tertiary Cardiothoracic Surgery, Neurosurgery and Renal Transplant surgery for the whole of the South West Peninsula.
The South West Cardiothoracic Centre, located within Derriford Hospital, offers a comprehensive cardiothoracic surgical and interventional cardiology service, carrying out all heart operations and procedures, except transplants, for adult patients.
The hospital routinely undertakes a wide range of leading edge procedures.
Our private services are managed by a dedicated Private Patients team located at the Meavy Clinic, the purposefully outfitted private ward at Derriford Hospital where the majority of private inpatient care takes place. Private outpatient care is performed throughout the trust and with the exception of Radiology will be arranged by the department responsible.
In most cases your first point of contact to arrange a private appointment or admission will be your consultant or GP. They will arrange a private referral to the necessary department or specialist consultant, or directly to the Private Patient team, to initiate your private healthcare pathway.
