costs of healthcare pre 1947

We are celebrating the national health service this year, in July, I was born before that date, and know the doctor was in attendance as I was a forceps delivery. About 6 weeks later I was very ill with pyloric stenosis, and had an operation, pre National Health, I was taken to hospital by taxi, my parents had to go home by bus as they could not afford the taxi both ways. Any ideas of how much "my operation would have cost"?
