And we've found Private Health to be far and away the best private healthcare portal. Great website, very targeted to our user groups, always innovating - and above all, a very able and efficient team to deal with."
Charlie Grieve, Brand Cast Media
We were concerned about getting the most from our limited marketing budget and had a healthy scepticism about how well any advertising works, particularly online. Within a few days of our feature pages going live we received phone calls asking us about our services. Within just over a month the advertising has paid for itself and we're still getting the phone calls. The team at privatehealth.co.uk helped us craft our pages to get maximum return from internet search pages and they're personal, amenable and above all, helpful. Our account manager is one of the few salespeople I'll take calls from and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their team to any business.

Sales Director, Essential Healthcare Ltd
Doctors and dentists
I would like to thank the team at Intuition Communication for their technical skills and efficient and courteous, prompt service. In modern medicine the internet can play a great role in health promotion and I believe in the UK the Private Health group of websites are the market leader. This process was vital for my unique orthopaedic practice. Orthopaedics is advancing rapidly; and sometimes the UK is a few years behind other countries. My clinical speciality interest of wide awake hand surgery is fully established in Canada; but the UK and US are somewhat behind. The Private Health group of websites have helped disseminate the evidence-base for wide awake hand surgery to patients and doctors in the UK. In addition to presenting this exciting evidence-based treatment option to hand surgery patients in London: Intuition Communication has supported the development of the first worldwide group on wide awake hand surgery.
From the moment I spoke to Vivienne Gibb at Private Healthcare UK I knew that this was to be a pleasant and helpful relationship. I received a lot of help in not only my campaign with Private Healthcare, but also in my overall plans. I hope other doctors don’t find Vivienne et al as I would like to keep the competitive advantage. I would like to thank the sales team, the production team, and even the finance team for putting up with a dyslexic geriatric.
I first heard about Private Healthcare UK from a friend of mine (who had used the services and provided a very positive feed back), in July 2008.
I contacted Private Healthcare late August 2008 and had a very prompt response by Vivienne Gibb. By mid September 2008 Anup Gohil and the team had my featured Consultant's page up and running. I had some additions and changes to the page since then, all dealt by with great efficiency!
The featured page has paid back the cost fast . Of course, it generates more activity in my private practice, as many patients confirm that they have used the page!
Anastasia Rachmanidou - Consultant ENT Surgeon
Since joining Private Healthcare UK in 2008 my web presence has improved significantly. I now get page one positions for relevant search terms like "ENT Surgeon Sussex" and as a result have seen an increase in referrals. The site has excellent information for patients and is extremely well managed by the team. It has been a pleasure working with them and I look forward to a long working relationship with them.
Paul Kirkland – ENT Surgeon
I have been advertising with Private Healthcare for a number of years now and it has proved an incredibly cost effective way for me to promote my private practice.
The content I have on the website is really helping with my search engine rankings and I have seen patient numbers increase. The internet is the main source of information for people looking to make an informed choice, Private Healthcare UK helps them to do this.
Jaan Panesar – ENT and Head & Neck Surgeon
“Private Healthcare have taken great interest in our business development and maintain a great rapport with us at Senova Dental Studios, Watford.
They show excellent attention to detail at all times and the results of their efforts speak for themselves by the amount of new patients enquiries we receive each month.
We would not choose to work without the support of Private Healthcare .”
Senova Dental Watford
I advertise my services on both the Private Health and Harley Street Guide websites and have had very positive responses from each. Both websites are extremely well produced and maintained and I have found the Customer Support service to be highly professional. It has definitely been a very worthwhile marketing investment.
Although I only starting using www.privatehealthcare.co.uk this year (2008) it has proved a great success in growing my private practice.
The site is very well run and it has been a pleasure dealing with Vivienne Gibb and the rest of team. Promoting via the web is becoming more important as patients seek to become informed about their choices. The Private Healthcare UK website is very comprehensive and gives the patients all the information they could possibly need. I look forward to working with them for the considerable future.

The staff are informed, efficient and helpful. There is no better way of attracting interest via the internet.
Private Healthcare UK is constantly coming up with innovative marketing tools such as Video Profiles which I took advantage of earlier this year and as ever has provided a fantastic way for me to promote my services.
If you are serious about promoting your private practice on the web there is no better place to do it.
Devinder Singh Bansi - Consultant Gastroenterologist
www.privatehealthcare.co.uk has both consistently maintained my profile in high Google rankings and has also proved to be an easily contactable company throughout the year who respond proactively to their customers requests. Internet visibility is becoming increasingly important for patients looking to make an informed choice and Private Healthcare gives them access to the information they need.

An excellent and efficient service, which I would recommend to any medical practitioner wanting to develop his/her private practice. Very flexible and cost effective, with a wide coverage. I have always received a prompt and courteous response from Private Health UK and you will not regret being included on their website.
Adrian Winbow – Consultant Psychiatrist
I have just been reviewing the stats for my web site and a full 23% of all hits came from your referral site. This is way above the nearest competitor, Dental Doc Shop who is at only 3%. In addition many patients comment on how easy your site is to navigate and how they appreciated the simple to use lay-out.
Private healthcare is working for me which is no surprise as your whole team are extremely efficient and helpful.
Dr. Anthony Zybutz, 39 Harley Street
It is important to realise that your private practice is a business and, like any other business, advertising and marketing are essential not just to maintain market position but to increase it. So, when a company came along who said they were able to help position my business in front of the people who wanted to access quality healthcare, I thought it was worth looking at what they had to offer. And the guys at PrivateHealth have done an excellent job in presenting me, my business and the services I offer through their internet-sites as one of the first ports of call for people looking for a private consultant.
I supplied a jpeg photo, a few details and my own website information and within 48 hours my page was designed and up and active. The team at PrivateHealth were efficient, friendly, very consultant orientated and delivered more than they promised. With their sites getting 200,000 hits a month and increasing, I know that I have found a partner who is going to help me build my business. I am now going to use them to market my Sports Clinic as well!
Richard Sinnerton, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
I have advertised with Private Healthcare UK this year and I am impressed with their search engine rankings and click through rates. We receive a significant number of enquiries directly from their advertising and we continue to promote samedaydoctor through them. At a time when cost per click advertising is uncertain, using Private Healthcare UK is a good viable addition or alternative.
Dr Lawrence Gerlis, Sameday Doctor
I am pleased with the response to the website. The setup and design was very quick and the aftersales service is excellent.

I must say, the quality of service and professionalism from privatehealth.co.uk really sets you apart from other directories/resource sites we deal with.
Graeme Rutherford, New Media Manager, Alchemy Communication Ltd
Overseas healthcare providers
We are a new healthcare abroad treatment facilitation UK-business and one of the first places I found from my online research were websites from a company called Intuition Communication. They instantly appealed to me and got me interested so I sent an enquiry (along with a hundred other enquiries to all sorts of places). I had a call on my number within an hour I think from a sales rep called Alfie Bektas. Alfie told me what services the company offers and followed through on the e-mail. I signed up within a couple of weeks. We are now featured on a few of their sites under 3 categories. Some of their websites' traffic numbers are quite impressive and show the work they put in this. I think they are in the right business and doing something right because they have major hospitals signed up with them. Another benefit to featuring with them, I think, SEO-wise, is website visibility. It's more cost effective than PPC, that's for sure, and with just a few customers a year from them the investment will pay off. I think working with Intuition Communication was a great start to a successful business.
Andrei Petunin, Business Owner: Operate Abroad
I have been working with your website for more than two years. First I was in dentistry section now I have been in plastic surgery. I am very pleased with our cooperation. I have got many patients that used your website to find me. For sure I will continue our cooperation in the next year! Thank you! Agnieszka Poprawska "EuroMediTravel"
We at Perfect Contours are now in our 3rd year of using www.treatmentabroad.com to promote our cosmetic surgery services in Hungary. We have always been impressed by everyone at the company, they are at the forefront of the medical tourism market and it has been extremely beneficial to be involved. The leads we get from interested patients are always of a high quality and mean we get a good flow of patients.
Treatment Abroad is constantly striving to offer the best possible marketing solutions. They launched a country specific site for Hungary sometime ago which has further helped establish the region as one of the key destinations. We have also used the “Ratings and Review” service which allows past patients to review their treatment with us and share their experience with people considering us. It is just another example of why they are the best at what they do and why we will continue to use them for the foreseeable future.
