Referral information

Referring your patients to The Edinburgh Clinic is easy to do – our preferred method is SCI Gateway: Search for ‘The Edinburgh Clinic’.

 

Self-pay referrals

All-inclusive price packages

Wherever possible, we offer self-funding patients an all-inclusive price package. This covers all treatment costs, such as the consultant’s operating charges, anaesthetist’s fees, hospital care and stay, and aftercare. This means that patients know exactly what they will pay before their treatment.

 

Making a self-pay referral

If you wish to refer a patient for private treatment, you can email a referral letter to enquiries@edinburghclinic.com As referral letters contain sensitive patient data, it is important to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Please use the secure email address above and do not send the referral letter through our website.

If you wish to refer a patient for self funding treatment, patients can find out by visiting our website www.edinburghclinic.com/selfpay or by calling 0131 447 2340 (option 2).
