Self-pay eliminates long waits for treatment

30 April 2013

More Brits are turning to self pay, one-off treatments to get premium health care tailored to their needs. In recent years, over a third of GPs have noticed an increase in patients asking about self pay options available to them. Although recent NHS reforms may be partially to blame, private health care’s high customer satisfaction rate is probably sparking the nationwide trend.

In addition, public health care often forces patients to wait for treatment, whereas private services ensure individuals have immediate access to necessary procedures. Patients don’t have to wait around for the appropriate diagnosis - instead, they can apply for treatment and schedule it shortly after a quick health assessment. Put simply, self pay puts you in control of your life and the treatment you receive. When it comes to your health, nothing could be more important than that.

For top-quality private health care services, turn to Spire Healthcare. Over 96 per cent of patients would recommend a Spire hospital, so you can relax knowing you will be well looked after. Learn more about self pay options and how to schedule a one-off treatment by visiting the website here.
