Private Health Care

Whether you have private Health Insurance, or wish to pay yourself (Self-Pay), our Specialists are delighted to offer appointments for opinion and treatment.


Generally, you will seen in one of our local private hospitals, often the new Spire Manchester Hospital in Didsbury, where YCM are reassurred the quality of attention is second to none. Depending on your child,s needs, and the preference of our Specialists, however, you may be seen at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital. This is particularly the case should your child require specialist Xrays or scans, when you can be assured that the scan will be carried out by one of our experienced Specialist Paediatric Radiologists.


Should your Specialist advise that your child requires further investigation, or treatment, you can discuss whether you wish for this to be carried out privately, or in the NHS. We can advise your GP in either event. We are able currently only able to admit to the Spire Hospital for treatment that can be carried out as a 'Day-case', or simple overnight care, although we can organise admision to RMCH for procedures that you wish to be carried out privately, and require longer periods of admission.


When your child is admitted to Hospital, whether to the Spire Manchester Hospital, or RMCH, you can be assured that your child will be nursed by Specialist Children's Nurses (RSCN). And any time your child needs a General Anaesthetic (GA) for their treatment, this will always be given by an Anaesthetist skilled and experienced in looking after children.


It would be helpful to us if you could ask your GP for a formal referral letter, especially if you are seeking treatment taking advantage of private health insurance; and in line with our commitment to safeguarding, your GP will be sent a summary of all consultations.
