Private Healthcare UK Self-Pay Market Study 2013

This new report from Intuition Communication, publishers of Private Healthcare UK, is the first in-depth analysis of the growing self-pay market for elective surgery in the UK.

This latest research highlights the factors behind the growth of the self-pay market for elective surgery, examines the offerings of the major healthcare providers, and includes an in depth analysis of pricing in the self-pay market.

In conducting the research, we set out to understand better the drivers behind self-pay surgery and to gauge the views of those in the market about the prospects for the next three to five years.  During the preparation of this report, the Competition Commission published its provisional findings into the private healthcare market and we were able to review and consider those findings in the light of our own research.

We talked to senior industry figures about their view of the market sector, carried out an online survey of participants in the private healthcare sector, including hospital managers, clinicians and senior decision makers, and analysed over 6,000 prices for the most common procedures.
