What is private medical insurance?
Private medical insurance gives you fast access to private healthcare.
Whether you need to see a consultant, have a diagnostic test or require a surgical procedure – having private health insurance means you won’t have to wait on the NHS waiting list.
Instead, you’ll be able to receive care at a private hospital, where you’ll benefit from high quality healthcare, carried out by experienced medical professionals in a clean and safe environment.
Private medical insurance is designed to put your health first and give you the medical care that you need without delay, so you can get on with the important things in life.
Why do I need private medical insurance?
If you started experiencing some medical symptoms, won’t you want it investigated straight away? And if it was diagnosed as a medical condition, won’t you want it treated immediately so you didn’t have to suffer further, or risk your condition getting worse and creating even more damage to your health?
No one likes to live with uncertainty hanging over them, particularly if it’s related to their health. This is where private medical insurance can help you. Most provide access to private GPs as well as fast access to diagnostic tests, advice from the best consultants and surgical procedures at private hospitals.
Private medical insurance puts you in control over when and where you receive your care.
