Imagine a situation where you have early symptoms of a condition and are able to have a same day online GP consultation. You are then referred immediately to your local private facility and after authorisation you see a specialist for a range of tests, are diagnosed with a treatable condition and booked in for a procedure, all of which in a fraction of time it would take relying on the NHS.
Taking out a healthcare plan will significantly reduce waiting times for diagnostic tests and treatment. Investing in your health by taking out cover ensures that you have done all you can to avoid lengthy delays in seeing a GP, providing essential diagnostic tests quickly and then being treated in good time to ensure the best chances of recovery.
