Private Hospitals

A private hospital is a hospital owned by a profit company or a non-profit organisation and privately funded through payment for medical services by patients themselves, by insurers, Governments through national health insurance schemes, or by foreign embassies.


Private hospitals tend to be faster in terms of waiting times than the National Health Service (NHS) which is funded by the government, as a result of there being less pressure on their services. In England, there are a number of private hospitals that you can choose to use.


However, please be aware that you are responsible for the payments of fees. Make the necessary inquiries before using these facilities.
