Self-pay hip and knee surgery through Benenden Health

We know that waiting for a hip or knee operation can be painful and also very frustrating. To help you receive your surgery quickly and return to doing those everyday tasks again, you can access self-pay through the award-winning Benenden Hospital or at one of our additional self-pay hospitals. 

As a Benenden Health member, you already get special member discounts on certain treatments, and we’re offering discounts on hip and knee surgery at more hospitals - potentially making self-funding your hip or knee replacement a more realistic option.

Just for Benenden Health members: discounts on self-pay hip and knee surgery at even more hospitals

Why are we expanding our self-pay offering?

Members asked, through our democratic process, whether Benenden Health could offer discounted self-pay services outside of our own Benenden Hospital in Kent. We've worked with our partner hospitals to secure special member discounts on orthopaedic surgery and have three additional hospitals currently available.

Why isn't this self-pay option available at all hospitals?

Until recently Benenden Health has only been able to offer members access to discounted self-pay treatments at Benenden Hospital Trust. Whilst every member is entitled to use the hospital in Kent, we recognise it may not be convenient or possible for them to do so.

Members asked, through our democratic process, whether Benenden Health could offer discounted self-funded services at the approved regional hospitals. So we are initially extending this to four hospitals within our approved network. 

In the future, we plan to expand the number of facilities within the approved network, where self-funded treatments are available at discounted rates to members.

Are only orthopaedic treatments available?

Yes. Currently we are only offering discounted prices for hip and knee replacements. In the future Benenden Health may look to expand the treatments available through self-funding.

How much will I pay for my treatment?

The cost of your self-funded treatment will depend on the procedure and location you choose. As a Benenden Health member, you will receive a discount on the usual cost of that procedure at your chosen location.

Why are the prices different at each location?

Each hospital takes their own approach to pricing self-pay procedures. We have arranged for the hospitals to offer Benenden Health members a discount on their usual package prices for hip and knee treatments.

As a Benenden Health member, if you choose to self-fund your treatment at one of the locations, you'll benefit from a discounted price.

How does it work?

Benenden Health members can benefit from a discount on the usual rates for hip and knee treatments at a selected number of hospitals. From those available, simply call your preferred location to discuss in more detail the orthopaedic treatment services they can provide.

If you choose to go ahead with a procedure, just let the hospital know that you’re a Benenden Health member and confirm your membership number and you’ll receive a discounted rate.
