What is it really like staying
in a private hospital?


If you've never visited a private hospital you might wonder what they're like. The NHS works to some of the highest standards in Europe, so what more can 'going private' offer?

Most importantly, private hospitals provide the highest standard of medical care. Like the NHS they work to strict guidelines and standards. The nurses and medical specialists have to meet at least the same levels of expertise as those working in the NHS, with many also practicing within the NHS. They use the latest medical equipment and techniques available and great attention is paid to hygiene to ensure your treatment is first class.

Because there are no accident and emergency cases and there are fewer patients to see, consultants and nurses are able to take the time to fully explain what the procedures are and to answer any questions that you have about your treatment. You're also likely to have the same nurse throughout your stay so you don't have to get used to new people bustling in and out of your room carrying out checks and giving you your medication.

In some parts of the country you may have to wait for certain treatments with the NHS, but if you opt for private treatment you can choose when and where you have your treatment. That could mean getting back to work and normal family activities faster, and if you are experiencing discomfort, getting back your quality of life quicker.

Aside from great medical care, when you want it, staying in a private hospital affords a few luxuries more often associated with a hotel stay than a hospital. When you arrive you'll find a comfortable waiting area with free tea and coffee and up to date magazines. Reception staff will help you get checked in as quickly as possible before you are taken to your room and helped to settle in.

You'll have your own private room, and most rooms have an en-suite bathroom with a shower, so you don't have to use communal facilities. Most rooms are also equipped with a TV, allow mobile phones and offer free wi-fi to keep you busy when you are waiting for treatment or in recovery. You'll have a menu with a great choice of quality food.

Choosing to stay at a private hospital means you are taking control of the situation. You can get the treatment you need, when you need it whilst opting for some extra comforts to help set your, and your family's, mind at ease at an often stressful time
when undergoing treatment.
