Claims arising from private healthcare

A range of factors including, availability of credit and new health insurance options, has resulted in increasing numbers of patients accessing private healthcare. Advances and innovations in medicine enable patients to undergo procedures that might be unavailable through the NHS.

The majority of patients are pleased with the quality of care they receive, and benefit from the ability to plan treatment to suit their other commitments. Unfortunately, despite excellent facilities and clinical expertise, errors are sometimes made. These can result in patients suffering serious harm.

A patient who elects, and pays, to undergo treatment which is unsuccessful may find that they are faced with further costs to rectify matters. Sometimes the serious damage caused by treatment may require specialist intervention from the NHS, or result in long term disability.
