In the UK everyone is entitled to free treatment from the NHS, however, many people opt to cover themselves privately as well. The main benefit of private medical insurance is that you can normally be treated more quickly, with more choice about when and where the treatment takes place.
Private Medical Insurance gives peace of mind when needed most, knowing that not only will medical bills be taken care of, but access will be available to the very latest treatments, facilities and leading specialists in all serious medical conditions, including cancer. The NHS cannot always offer this.
Although NHS waiting times have reduced a little in the past few years, with a private medical insurance policy, waiting times for consultations and treatment are minimal, thereby considerably reducing the stress on yourself and family which illness can bring and allowing for a much quicker return to normal life.
