KEMH Private Patient Incentive
All patients receive top level health care and the same
services regardless if they are a public or private patient.
However, the extra benefits of choosing your consultant
and the free incentives are only available to private patients.

A specialist doctor:
- As a private patient you are treated by a consultant
who is an experienced specialist doctor. In normal circumstances
if you require an anaesthetic it will be administered
by a specialist anaesthetist.
- By using your private health insurance, the money received
assists the hospital to buy additional equipment, maintain
facilities and continue to provide a superior service.
Private patient incentives:
- TV rental
- Visitor meals
In addition, all private inpatients receive a toiletries
gift pack on admission (includes tissues, conditioning shampoo,
shower cap, vanity set, soap, toothbrush and toothpaste).
- As a private patient, you may request a single room
(if you have appropriate private health coverage). However
access cannot be guaranteed as a priority is given to
patients with medically special needs.
