Why Go Private?
There are many reasons to choose private medical treatment, from avoiding lengthy NHS waiting lists, to not being satisfied with treatment on the NHS or wanting a second opinion. The resources of the NHS continue to be stressed despite significant government investment, and there can still be delays before NHS treatment is available.
Going private gives you:
Fast and flexible access to treatment
Choice of consultant or private specialist.
Choice of when and where you want to be treated.
Private treatment can usually be carried out quickly. Consultations and appointments take place at times that suit you and recovery from a major operation takes place in a comfortable private room where friends and family can visit with few restrictions. You can simply pay directly for your private treatment (“self-funding”). Alternately, a number of health insurance companies can also offer fixed price surgery schemes or loans for private health care, which makes private treatment a possibility for all.
