Christie Oncology Imaging Self-Funding patients

Patients who would like to pursue private healthcare but do not have private medical insurance can self-fund their treatment. It is entirely up to them and can be the appropriate choice for some patients. Patients are invited to write to with any queries.


Reasons to self pay include:

  • Don’t want to be put onto a waiting list, particularly when diagnosis and treatment times can impact on clinical outcomes.
  • Would like to be treated by a particular consultant specialist.
  • Would like to benefit from certain drugs or treatments not available in the NHS, which is particularly applicable to some cancer treatments.
  • Would like the experience of a private setting.
