You may receive NHS-funded care at St Joseph’s if your local NHS health board has contracted-out the services you require to St Joseph's Hospital.
Patients are normally only referred outside the area if the treatment they require is not available where they live. If this is the case then funding for treatment outside the local area has to be agreed with the health board.
Private health providers work closely with the NHS. You may receive NHS-funded care at a private provider if your local NHS health board has contracted out the services you require to a private healthcare provider.
