What we do

Private patients at Bradford Royal Infirmary have the combined advantage of receiving private healthcare from an NHS hospital with an award-winning workforce and the very latest technology.

Our Private Patient Booking Office is managed by Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (BTHFT), which boasts one of the lowest infection rates in the UK.

We are able to offer a wide range of medical and surgical treatments under the care of experienced consultants to patients who have medical insurance and those that choose to pay for their care.

Choosing to take advantage of private healthcare with BTHFT not only ensures you receive some of the best care available, it also helps the NHS, as all surpluses generated from private patients at the Trust are re-invested back into our NHS services for the benefit of all patients.
