About us

Although we are not a 'private hospital', there are many benefits to having your private treatment provided by the Oxford University Hospitals.

Oxford University Hospitals is one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the United Kingdom, with a national and international reputation for the excellence of its services and its role in education and research.

The Trust provides high quality general hospital services for the local population in Oxfordshire and neighbouring counties, and more specialist services on a regional and national basis.

Wherever possible we will provide your private care using facilities that are separated from NHS services. For some services however, this is not clinically desirable. Certain procedures or investigations requiring specific clinical expertise, or the use of highly specialist equipment, are best performed using staff or equipment shared by all patients, such as specialist intensive care, imaging and emergency cardiac arrest teams.

Consulting rooms

Oxford University Hospitals provides consulting rooms to referring clinicians which are charged to and paid by the relevant clinicians.

The referring clinicians do not have a share or financial interest in the facility or in equipment used in Oxford University Hospitals, although many of the clinicians may hold a contract of employment with the Trust.
