Private Hospitals in the UK

Private Hospitals and Procedures

The NHS has such a lot of pressure on it at the moment with ever increasing patient numbers plus we are living longer which also puts pressure on services. Those of us who can afford it can go privately and pay to see a specialist or have a procedure done, while private hospitals also cater for people who wish to have cosmetic procedures too. Here we take a look at some private hospitals and the services or procedures they offer.
