Private Medical Insurance is designed to complement the NHS

Private Health Insurance gives you fast access to eligible health treatment when you need it – from seeing a specialist for prompt diagnosis to having a comfortable private hospital stay at a time and place that is convenient to you, its there to get you back on your feet as quickly as possible.

It may also pay for drugs and treatments which are not available on the NHS.

If you have an existing Private Medical Insurance policy, it is sensible to review this on an annual basis to ensure you are getting suitable cover for the right price.

Our NHS is a wonderful institution; it is one of the UKs most prized assets with millions of people depending on NHS care.

Private Medical Insurance is designed to complement the NHS and NOT replace its services, and the NHS is still the best place for Primary & Emergency care such as A&E.

However, the UKs aging population, spiralling costs and efforts to make savings are leaving it strained, which could leave you at the mercy of these statistics* –

• The waiting list for hospital treatment rose to a record of nearly 7.8 million in September 2023 – which is nearly double the waiting list in the middle of 2020

• The NHS target of 85% of people being treated for cancer within 62 days (from urgent GP referral to treatment) is actually only 59.3% of people treated within that timeframe.

• The number of people waiting for treatment for over a year has hit around 400,000
