Contact Information

Our Appointments Team have a dedicated and caring approach to finding you the earliest appointment possible with the best specialist.

Most patients are referred to us by their GP or another medical specialist as a referral letter is often needed before an appointment can be confirmed.

If you do not have a GP, then we may be able to assist you by suggesting the most appropriate course of action for you to take, given your location and individual circumstance.

If you have medical insurance (e.g. Bupa, Axa PPP, Norwich Union), you will need to contact your insurer to get authorisation for any treatment and, in most cases, you will require a referral letter from your GP.

Our Charity

The Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth is a charity, meaning every time you visit here for treatment you are helping someone less fortunate than yourself.

Our aim is to help care for the sick, whilst putting back profits from our world-renowned organisation to fund our on-site hospice and clinics. Our key objectives are to make sure that patients receive the support and treatment they need in an environment that is safe and secure, offering the very highest standards of care to whoever seeks it.

As a charity, we must operate on a not-for-profit basis and our assets are used for charitable purposes.
