Charnwood Suite (Private Patients)

Opening Times: 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Telephone: 01493 453900
Location: First floor, west corridor (next to Ward 11).

The Charnwood Suite is a dedicated private unit with eight single en-suite rooms and one consulting room, providing nursing services and accommodation for private and amenity patients.  We have a small, professional team of nurses and healthcare assistants who strive to provide the highest standards of care throughout your stay.

Our experienced and local consultants cover a wide range of specialties including:

  • General Surgery
  • Gynaecology
  • Breast Care
  • Urology
  • Ear, Nose and Throat
  • Ophthalmology
  • Orthopaedics
  • Gastroenterology

The Charnwood Suite co-ordinators can assist you with making a claim via your private health insurance if necessary and the Trust also offers a range of package prices to patients who would prefer to pay for their own treatment.  Private patients are entirely cared for by their consultant surgeon and anaesthetist with the reassurance and support of an NHS hospital offering diagnostic facilities, modern operating theatres and access to on-site intensive care or high dependency beds when required.

 Amenity patients remain under the care of their NHS team of consultants and junior doctors and pay for their accommodation and private menu only.

The income generated by private patients is important to our hospital and will be invested into the James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to further develop facilities and clinical services.
