The UK is one of the few places in the world that has a universal free health service, so why would anyone choose to pay privately for medical care?
According to latest PMI surveys, the main reasons for going private is the increasing demand on the NHS which has resulted in long waiting lists. The fear of superbugs such as MSRA and hospital cleanliness, also topped the list of concerns and as a contributing factor, for taking out private medical insurance.
Private health insurance gives you the peace of mind that you and your family will have quick access to medical treatment along with many other benefits:
See a Consultant for quick diagnosis
Pick appointments that are convenient to them
Enjoy unrestricted visiting hours
Get Fast Access to treatment
Recover in a private en-suite room
Choose from a wide range of freshly prepared, healthy meals
Choose their hospital and doctor
Benefit from WiFi and private TV
Continuity of care, get seen by the same consultant
This is my second year with switch health and I can`t recommend them enough. Always polite and helpful, I know I can ask to many questions but they are always answered , it seems nothing is too much trouble. I don`t like recommending, but in this case I will make an exception. On another plus side I seem to get a good price for my health care.
When I looked to change my families Health Insurance cover in July 2018, I started to look online and get quotes. I became hounded by a few different companies but Jacob from Switch Health was able to assist. He was really helpful and informative and was able to understand exactly what my family needed. I was with a large heath care provider with a quote of over £2,000 for the year. After discussing my options with Jacob I realised he could save £800. I would happily recommend Switch Health to all.
Helpful and responds fast to queries. Jack was very helpful and quickly found the best solution to replace my insurer who's suddenly pulling out of the UK market. I would recommend highly!
