We hope you will find the following links useful if you are trying to find an insurance policy or to find a suitable private hospital.  Most hospital websites also have lists of the main treatment areas they can offer and the specialists who have admitting rights there.

NB: Individual private hospitals that do not form part of a group are not listed here and neither is this list exhaustive.  Your Personal Financial Advisor may also be someone who can find you a PMI policy to fit your needs and lifestyle.
