The Benefits of Private Care
How much control can you have over your orthopaedic treatment? The short answer is more than you think.
Here are a few of the reasons more & more people are choosing Medbelle for their orthopaedic surgery:
The most common reason people choose to have their treatment within a private setting is to cut the waiting lists associated with the NHS. In Private healthcare, waiting lists are dramatically reduced. People have much faster access to diagnostic tests and treatments that could take weeks or months through traditional waiting lists.
Your personal Patient Care Adviser will guide you through every step of your treatment journey. We know that your treatment journey can feel overwhelming, so your PCA will take care of everything from booking your appointments to organising your treatment, so you can focus on what’s important to you. They will be right by your side from start to finish, so you feel supported, listened to, and cared for.
Private hospitals favour leading-edge technologies and treatments, and different sites are often specialised in only a handful of treatments. These facilities regularly update their equipment in line with new advances in medical research, meaning you will have access to technology and equipment at the forefront of medical practices.
Consistent & High-Quality Care
The use of modern and leading-edge technology means a safer procedure with the highest quality - we won’t settle for anything less than perfect for your surgery. From your first consultation right through to your procedure and recovery, you’ll be cared for by the same consultant surgeon. These surgeons know the ins and outs of your procedure, and their specialised teams will support you every step of the way.
Comfort & Privacy
When it comes to recovery from any surgery, comfort is key.
One of the biggest differences we’ve found between the NHS and Private healthcare is the treatment and recovery environments. While the NHS is housed in a more traditional hospital setting, private healthcare boasts a more modern feel and are often run to a higher standard than the average NHS hospital.
With private rooms, en-suite facilities and less ‘hospital’ styled decor, some Private hospitals can seem a little more like a hotel and less like a hospital. More often than not, you’ll have your own private room with a TV and menu options, where your friends and family can freely come to check up on you at any time of the day. This isn’t to say that Private facilities don’t have all the medical equipment you’ll need to make a fast recovery. It’s just a recovery with home-like comforts and a little more style.
More Choice & Flexibility
At the end of the day, this process needs to be the best for you. Unlike the NHS, choosing the private route will shorten the wait time for a consultation (often drastically) and allow you to be more selective with your surgery dates and the surgeon themselves. You can have more control over your experience so when it comes to procedure day.
All in all, you can take more control over your own healthcare - even when it feels like a big deal. The benefits of going private mean that you immediately have more choice and control over your procedure. From the flexibility of consultation and surgery times to the most up to date technology, you will be supported every step of the way from the privacy and comfort of your own home.
