At DHC we aim to provide quality healthcare in local setting for the benefit of patients.
When you are referred to DHC and seen by one of our consultants, you maybe referred for further investigations, treatment or surgery. Our imaging partners will perform tests such as a CT or MRI scan on our behalf, and the result will be sent back to your consultant to discuss with you.
The following is a list of medical procedures that we offer either within DHC (in black) or with one of our partner local Private Hospitals (in blue). There will be no charge to you in using a Private Hospital as DHC has agreed that these hospitals will still use the NHS tariff. The list is not exhaustive and you may require other procedures or investigations for which you will be referred to another local NHS Hospital. If this is the case, then your follow up appointment will still be with DHC, unless it is discovered that your care requires more expertise.
