Five reasons to consider private surgery
Choosing to go private for surgery can be a huge decision to make, especially when you have to consider long waiting lists against cost. However, you may be surprised at how easy it is for anyone to self-refer and access private healthcare. We take a look at the top five benefits of choosing private surgery at Kinvara Private Hospital.
1. Patient centred care
At Kinvara Private Hospital, the patient always comes first. Our mission is to provide the best private healthcare in the UK, which means a short waiting time to see your consultant and quick access to surgery.
2. Avoid long waiting lists
It goes without saying that no one deserves to wait for surgery. As soon as you have met with your consultant and they agree that surgery is the best option, you can expect to be booked within a few weeks.
Many patients do not realise that they do not need a GP referral letter and can self-refer. If you are unsure, then give us a call and our admin staff can advise you.
3. Same-day discharge
The convenience of private surgery is unrivalled. Many of our patients prefer to return home the same day after surgery. Indeed, home recovery is the better option. We aim to get you up-and-about as soon as possible, so that you can return to your daily activities quickly.
4. Get the 5-star treatment
If your surgery or consultant requires you to stay overnight, our patient bedrooms have been designed to provide great comfort and peace-of-mind. We are proud to give all our patients a ‘hotel-like’ experience and indeed, we are the only hospital in the country to have Molton Brown products in every room!
5. Very low risk of infection
We take hospital acquired infection very seriously and take every measure to reduce the risk of infection. As the vast majority of our patients return home the same day as surgery, the risk of infection is greatly reduced.
The two operating theatres at Kinvara Private Hospital have laminar-flow air technology, ensuring operations take place in ultra-clean environment. The hospital is supported by highly qualified and experienced medical personnel, all of whom are registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) and Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC).
If you are considering surgery at Kinvara Private Hospital, the next step would be to speak to a member of our admin staff who can book you in for a consultation with a specialist consultant.
You do not have to be referred by your GP if you are paying the cost yourself. If you have private medical insurance, you will need to obtain a letter of referral from your GP (always follow instructions from your insurance provider) before you come in for a consultation.
Our team is always on hand to answer any questions you may have – and we want to ensure every step of your journey with us is comfortable and you are fully informed.
