Details of the Request

  1. Does your Trust offer the option to patients for self-funding of certain treatments and procedures? If so, please state when this policy was first introduced.
     
  2. Please list all treatments and procedures that patients currently have the option of self-funding at your trust.
     
  3. Please list any treatments and procedures that were added to the list of services patients can self-fund at your trust in the past 12 months.
     
  4. Please state the total number of self-funding patients the Trust treated in each the following years:
     
    • 2010/11
    • 2011/12
    • 2012/13
    • 2013/14
       
  5. Please state the total amount of money the Trust received from self-funding patients in each the following years:
     
    • 2010/11
    • 2011/12
    • 2012/13
    • 2013/14
       

To clarify, I am referring to a policy some hospitals have introduced to allow patients to pay for certain treatment at NHS rates. This usually applies to procedures that are restricted on the NHS, for example IVF. This is not something that has been introduced everywhere so may not apply to your own Trust.
