Private treatment can usually be carried out quickly. Consultations and appointments take place at times that suit you and recovery from a major operation takes place in a comfortable en-suite room where friends and family can visit with few restrictions.

Many people choose private healthcare because their employer offers insurance as a perk, but you don't need to have insurance to get private treatment. You can simply pay directly for your private treatment; this is known as 'self-paying' and most private hospitals offer fixed price surgery schemes or loans for surgery exactly for this purpose.

Private treatment may not cost as much as you think!
