NHS aims to provide anyone with appropriate treatment within 18 weeks of referral. Financial constraints and the rising cost of advanced treatments have created a climate, in which the shape of publicly funded healthcare has increased unease and doubts. Those seeking peace of mind and the best possible medical care options should consider private medical insurance, which offers speedy access to high-quality diagnosis and specialist treatments and surgeries when you need them the most. As well as the advantage of fast-track appointments, which bypass enormous queues in NHS, health insurance also brings you a choice of added luxuries of your own private room with en-suite facilities and many more, including family visits at any time. In addition, during your private hospital care, you will have access to a much-enhanced range of all of the latest drugs and advanced medical procedures to ensure you always receive the most effective treatment for your condition.
