The NHS is amazing at emergency care.
You can have a heart attack and your heart arteries could be unblocked within 2 hours.
But when it comes to less urgent things the delays can be intolerable.
I’ve seen a patient today who was admitted to hospital in March with a very fast heart rate causing poor heart function but he is still waiting for his treatment.
I saw him last week as he was fed up and he’s had his ablation treatment this week, restoring normal rhythm and hopefully heart function.
If you have insurance please do use it for things like this.
You get treatment quicker and in a more pleasant environment
You also take some of the burden off the NHS which means that more patients get treated.
