Private Insurance

At The Christie Oncology Imaging, we provide a comprehensive cancer service for patients who have private medical insurance or choose to self-fund their treatment. As a patient you will receive world-class pioneering cancer care with access to a wide range of diagnostic and treatment facilities, including a large number of clinical trials.

All Christie Oncology Imaging consultants are registered with the major UK insurers and in most cases can invoice the insurer directly on the patient’s behalf.

Professional fees vary according to the type of procedure and take into account the complexity, time and the consultant skill involved in your treatment. The Christie Oncology Imaging or Christie Private Clinic secretary will always confirm to you before each treatment or appointment what the fees are, however it is important to remember that these may change on the day of treatment if your procedure turns out to be different from what was planned.


Getting Referred to a Christie Oncology Imaging Consultant

Patients are invited to write to with any queries.

Most insurance companies require a referral from a GP (General Practitioner) or another Medical Consultant in order to authorise treatment. You can ask your Consultant, Physician or GP will write a referral letter to us and ask one of our consultants to see you.

As some if our investigations and interventions are highly specialised the Christie Oncology Imaging Consultants need to have all your medical information in order to evaluate your condition and recommend the most appropriate treatment, so it’s important to send all your recent scans and medical reports to Christie Oncology Imaging in advance.
