This report will explore the following key questions regarding the private healthcare market in the UK:
- What are the key determinants driving the industry?
- How have government schemes influenced market demand and supply?
- How has the provision of healthcare services changed over recent times? Has it helped private sector provision?
- What does the future hold for private healthcare services?
This report covers the private healthcare sector, and includes the provision of healthcare services through private hospitals and clinics, and the private medical insurance sector, which is so important to the financing of private medical care. It is estimated that 53% of private medical sector expenditure is met through private medical insurance.
Private residential care and nursing care for the elderly is covered in a separate report published annually by MBD. Other related reports published by MBD include the UK Occupational Healthcare market.
The private healthcare sector operates alongside the publicly available NHS. There is significant interrelationship between the two systems, with the private sector relying on NHS consultants for a large segment of its medical manpower. The development of the private sector is largely reliant on NHS consultants being available to undertake private work.
The DoH also encourages the NHS to utilise private healthcare facilities where this offers an economic opportunity. For this reason, the sector incorporates a number of different scenarios in addition to publicly financed and public supply health services:
