Accessing Healthcare

Need to Access Local Hospital Treatment?

Your Treatment, Your Way.

 Accessing treatment at Fulwood Hospital can be done via three routes:

  • As an NHS patient
  • By paying for your own treatment
  • By using your private health insurance

NHS Patients

As an NHS patient you are able to choose where you have your treatment. 

Who can benefit from NHS Services?  

If you choose to have your treatment on the NHS at Fulwood Hall Hospital, you will benefit from:

  • Specialist consultant opinion
  • Treatment in a local private hospital
  • Low risk of infection
  • Free parking 
  • Short waiting times

If you require treatment or a second opinion, ask your GP to refer you.

What is Patient Choice?

The government introduced Patient Choice as an initiative that allows all NHS patients to choose where and when they are treated.
