The NHS, the British institution of which so many of us are proud. Pre-Covid, as the NHS celebrated it’s 70th anniversary in 2018, 87%1 of Brits were proud of our healthcare system. Since Covid arrived, we have done National Claps on Thursday evenings and adorned our homes with rainbows to demonstrate our thanks to those on the front line who risks their own lives for us all. Covid has without a doubt put a huge strain on the NHS and with latest figures demonstrating understandably long wait times2 for treatments, many people are turning to private healthcare.
What can private healthcare offer me right now, which the NHS can’t?
Private health insurers each offer a number of benefits which continue to function throughout the pandemic. Remote access with your GP, appointments with your musculoskeletal clinicians and sessions with mental health practitioners are top of the list. Cancer care is not affected3 – Cancer care for customers is crucial and insurers and private hospitals are working to ensure minimal impact on services. Private hospitals are endeavouring to continue to provide cancer services at dedicated sites throughout the UK. (Please note, these benefits will vary from insurer to insurer depending on the package you chosen to invest in.)
What can Lloyd & Whyte offer me?
It may surprise you that for £7 per month (less than what you may pay for your Netflix account for example) you can have access to a GP, receive support for physiotherapy, access a Specialist Nurse Helpline to discuss any cancer and heart problems and it will even cover the cost of your prescriptions being delivered to your home.
For £29 per month, that’s a £1 a day you can access a GP, receive physio support, access the nurse helplines, be referred to a specialist consultant including any tests or scans you may require and have all your treatment. Price is important but so is early intervention, quick diagnosis as well as a treatment plan to enable you to recover quickly and safely.
