New research into the self-pay private patient market in the UK

This new report from Intuition Communication, publishers of Private Healthcare UK, is an in-depth analysis of the growing self-pay market for elective surgery in the UK.

This latest research highlights the factors behind the growth of the self-pay market for elective surgery, examines the offerings of the major healthcare providers, and includes an in-depth analysis of pricing in the self-pay market.

In conducting the research, we set out to understand better the drivers behind self-pay surgery and to gauge the views of those in the market about the prospects for the next three to five years.  Since the publication of our first report into the self pay market,  the Competition and Markets Authority has published the results of its investigation into the private healthcare market. We have examined the effect of this on price transparency and the level of pricing in the UK market.

We talked to senior industry figures about their view of the market sector, carried out an online survey of participants in the private healthcare sector, including hospital managers, clinicians and senior decision makers.

We also carried out a detailed analysis of around 5,000 prices for the most common procedures offered on a fixed price basis in the UK’s private hospitals.
