Useful Resources » Private Healthcare

A significant proportion of Britain's healthcare is provided by practitioners in the private sector who have the skills and capacity to undertake procedures quickly and cost-effectively.

HIGH QUALITY SERVICES

A wide range of high quality services is available to purchasers by way of established agreements between the public and independent sectors. Independent healthcare facilities include:

  • Private hospitals and clinics
  • Private nursing and residential homes
  • Private patient units in NHS Trusts
  • Independent acute psychiatric hospitals

THE BENEFITS OF PARTNERSHIP

Continuing partnership between the independent sector, the NHS and local authorities means:

  • There is more choice for service purchasers
  • NHS Trusts can in many cases buy services from independent hospitals to reduce pressure on resources
