In 2014, we are planning to redevelop Private Healthcare UK and its sister site GoPrivate.com into a single site.
Your opinion is important to us, and so we are asking for your help to test the search we’ll be using for finding a doctor, hospital, clinic or other health professional.
The task will take less than a minute to complete, and you will be entered into a prize draw with the chance to win £100 of Amazon vouchers!

As the population gets older, more people are in need of
hip replacements for hip joints that have been damaged by
osteoarthritis. Hip replacement on the NHS may involve a lengthy wait
for diagnosis and surgery. So, for many people, a private
hip replacement, either covered by health insurance or on a self pay
basis, becomes an attractive option.
This guide to private hip replacement tells you what's
involved, what to look out for and what you need to consider both before
and after the hip operation.
