Exeter Private Patients logo

The Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust aims to provide an efficient Private Patient Service offering a wide range of specialities, generating income for the benefit of all patients.

Although we are not a ‘private hospital’ there are many benefits to having your private treatment at the Trust.


By choosing to have your private treatment with us, you can rest assured that there is a full range of general and specialist medical and surgical services on site - 24 hours a day. There will always be a doctor who can see you immediately in an emergency. You will have immediate access to any additional care that you might need, including a complete range of diagnostic facilities.

Supporting the NHS

All income generated by services provided to private patients at the RD&E goes back into the hospital's finances, to support and improve NHS services, which benefits all patients at the hospital.

Using medical insurance or paying for yourself

You can be treated privately at the RD&E whether you have private medical insurance or are paying directly for yourself. For self-funding patients, we are happy to provide a quote to ensure that you are fully aware of the potential costs involved.
