Just looking at some prices.

So, as it stands it could cost anywhere between £8,000 to £11,000 to have a baby in the UK privately - as long as everything goes along fairly smoothly.


Shiit, it there was no NHS how many workers earning the average wage a year would be able to afford to have a baby. British economy would sink faster than a very fast thingy.

It costs on average 15,000 pounds to have a hip replacement or a knee surgery. I bet wheel chairs are not cheap either.

So what do you think the cost is of having a baby in the NHS? Free...? :lol:

The NHS is such a bloated leviathan it probably costs more than £11K... You just don't get a bill at the end of it but have to pay the highest taxes since the war and through the nose for everything else... :roll:

Plus of course, those that choose not to have babies have to subsidise those that do... :?

What an utter mong you are... :x

There are idiots on this forum that bury their head in the sand and their ass up in the air. What a sight that is.

Now clearly the NHS must cost less as there are no share holders to get dividends and there are no CEO paying themselves tens of millions a year.

Lets have a look at some hard facts.

Hip replacement £5,620
Knee replacement £5,350
Having a baby - without complications £2,790

What a difference. That's a third of the price. The irony of course us the same doctors at times work both Private and NHS.

I am afraid this was a few years ago but doctors and nurses pay have actually dropped since 2010 never mind 2015

A relative of mine had a knee surgery back in the 90s because NHS was not possible and I will never forget the doctors prices. He said it with a straight face.
Self funded 3200 pounds
Insured 5500 pounds

Hoe does it feel to be so stupid, greedy and selfish? Tell us all about it. Guilt shared is a guilt halved.

Shove it up your ass and light it baby

What is amazing in private healthcare if you ever are able to see it, the workers are working in totally unsuitable environment. A room literally 1 meter by 1 meter are has two people working in it. I would not have believed it if I had not seen it with my own eyes. And yet they charge so much.

Well what do you know. Private hospitals are registered as charities.

Shit maeeeeeen, no wonder not enough tax is collected.
