Many people now have the benefit of Private Medical Insurance via personal or employer policies. The key benefit of these policies are that they can speed up referrals for treatment when the same treatment may have a significant waiting list on the NHS.
Some people, such as for the use of fertility treatments, have no option but to use the private sector for treatment, if the treatment is not available on the NHS.
Additionally, you may be treated by the private sector when referral is made by your GP under a choose and book scheme.
The medical staff providing private treatment owe the same duty of care to ensure that the treatment they provide is reasonably competent.
Poor private treatment may be subject to a claim for breach of contract; meaning that it is important that receipts for payments and or the policy of Private Medical Insurance is always available.
We are regularly instructed in relation to the following private surgery treatments:
- Orthopaedic Injuries and rehabilitation
- Women's Health
- Cosmetic Surgery
If you believe that you have received poor treatment on the private sector it is important that you obtain specialist advice.
