Private healthcare in the UK is offered in most areas of healthcare. These institutions are usually are funded by patients who either choose or have to pay for themselves. Many prefer using this service over the NHS as it can be quicker and have more luxurious or less crowded facilities.

General Healthcare Group is the leading provider of independent health care services in the UK, but there are many other independent providers as well. Private healthcare providers specialise in acute-care medicine, which is specialist support following or prior to treatment or surgery.

Other areas where private healthcare providers specialise are:

  • Dentistry
  • Orthodontics
  • Cosmetic Surgery
  • Fertility Treatment
  • DNA Testing

The clinics across the country employ a very large number of professionals in all areas of healthcare, some of which specialise in services not provided by the National Health Service. Benefits of going private are that patients can see the consultant of choice.

Working in private healthcare can come with many attractive benefits, and can offer a different working environment from the NHS.
