People regard the NHS is a very valuable facility but sometimes people also need additional peace of mind that they will have prompt access to treatment or diagnosis if there is a delay in NHS care. It is possible to create a programme where the care provided by the NHS is balanced with some level of private medical care.
More people than ever before are waiting to get treatment on the NHS and in the last year this increase has been significant. Some parts of the NHS have particularly lengthy delays, such as departments responsible for providing knee and hip replacements. It is estimated that in this category patients have been waiting for longer than four and a half months for treatment.
Healthier Solutions is the individual private medical insurance that is provided by the insurance firm Aviva. This will give potential patients several benefits over the healthcare provided by the NHS. Instead of having appointment time fitted to suit the NHS, you are able to choose an appointment that is at a suitable time for you, and in a suitable location.
