All of our surgical and procedure packages, from day-case procedures such as cataract surgery and endoscopies, to complex heart, orthopaedic or spinal surgery, come with a 28-day post-operation guarantee. This means that the costs are covered as part of your original package, if you need to be readmitted for a clinical reason or have follow-up treatment within 28 days*. This offers you the reassurance of a “safety net”, should you need it.
