Can I Get Weight Loss Surgery On Finance?

Choosing to undertake weight loss surgery is not only a big psychological decision but also a financial one too. Unfortunately, not everyone qualifies for NHS funding for weight loss surgery and a lot of people prefer to go private with this type of surgery.

To qualify for NHS funding, you would need to meet the following criteria:

  • Have a BMI of 40+ or between 35 and 40 with an obesity-related condition that may improve if the weight was lost, for example, type 2 diabetes.
  • Can demonstrate that you have tried other weight loss and dieting methods, all of which have been unsuccessful.
  • Have agreed and committed to long-term follow-up strategies after the bariatric surgery, for example, keeping up with healthy life changes and attending regular check-ups.

If you do not qualify for NHS funding or would prefer to go private, Streamline offer flexible finance packages with the aim to make bariatric procedures more affordable with monthly payment options, spreading the cost out over 2 to 5 years.

Our current procedure costs are as follows:

ProcedureCost From
Gastric Balloon£3,660
Gastric Band£6,850
Gastric Sleeve£10,485
Gastric Bypass£11,250

By choosing to use a finance package, you will still receive all of the same benefits and quality care, the only difference being that the cost of your weight loss surgery and aftercare will be spread out.

At Streamline, we offer a range of free initial consultations, providing you with the opportunity to discuss the surgery options available to you and the chance to ask any questions you may have, all with no obligation.
