Choose your hospitals

Your private treatment choices

Consultant Select – included on all our plans – gives you complete peace-of-mind, because it lets doctors decide who should treat you – instead of an insurer.

When you need a referral, we leave our expert medical partners Alliance Surgical an independent doctor-owned organisation – to choose the best consultant for you, based entirely on your medical needs.

However, if you would like more choice over where you are treated, you can choose one of three hospital lists.
