Frequently asked questions

Here, you will find some commonly asked questions about Priory Hospital Woking.

Are visitors allowed?

Yes, we encourage you to keep in touch with loved ones and have them visit you.

When you arrive at the hospital, depending on the condition that you're being treated for, our ward staff will be able to tell you about the dedicated visiting times.

Visiting is permitted on weekdays and weekends, and children are allowed to visit. We just ask that they stay with an appropriate adult at all times and are respectful of others who are staying with us.

Will I get my own bedroom?

If you're receiving inpatient treatment for any condition, you'll have your own en-suite bedroom. 

Bedrooms include a TV, DVD player, a small safety deposit box and a nurse call button. 

We also have regular housekeeping. 

How much does treatment cost?

The cost of treatment can vary depending on the condition that's being treated, the kind of treatment you receive and how long the condition needs to be treated.

Inpatient treatment, where you stay with us, can cost more than outpatient treatment, which is where you come to the hospital for treatment but then go home afterwards.
