The Guardian reports that paying for private medical treatment does not guarantee a safer or better quality of care than using the NHS, the health inspectorate has said, in its first analysis of the performance of the independent sector.
OK – but PRimage view is that may people who can afford and opt for private healthcare do so because of concerns about all the issues and problems endemic in today’s NHS: long waiting lists, cost-cutting, hospital acquired infections, etc. With private care, there’s also the the peace of mind that you can have treatement at the time and hospital of your choice.
