Private Healthcare in UK

Have you ever wondered what it is, or what it does?

Or even what is its aim?

I suspect most couldn’t care less.

Have you ever wondered why the vast majority of your posts on this forum are ignored?

...anyone who benefits from socialised medicine should care about Private Healthcare.

So, in that regard, i am looking forward to seeing what Lordo will do with it...

Tell us what you think it is and what it is for Potty Mouth... :lol:

No doubt there will be no reference to the appalling shit-show which is the NHS... :roll:

One of the facts that strikes you is that every computer on every desk has a card reader device.

When the phone rings, the first question is not what is the matter with you but are you insured or self funded. It is then that they ask your name never mind what is the problem.

But the ultimate question is do they provide health care to the location they are in. Unfortunately they do not provide healthcare to even the people who work there. If they are sick they have to go to the nearest NHS. Now, this was a surprise to me.

I used to think the Swine were aiming to replace NHS with Private Healthcare but I can now see that is not possible. A parasite does not kill it's host in nature and hence they need a NHS system to survive. But they do need a weak underfunded with huge waiting lists so as to suck the blood.

Disgusting! :evil:

It is like when I went to collect my new car recently they made me pay the money before they would give me the keys! :?

And then, when I said, "I bet all the staff get free cars!" they said they didn't! How awful! :roll:

Honestly, what an utter, utter Mong you are... :wink:

Interestingly when you take car for repairs even they do not ask you whether it is self funded or insurance. The price does not change except if you pay cash they may not charge VAT.

What is even more interesting is the fact that self funded is normally charged at half price to an insurance job in Private Health. Is that not scamming the people who pay the insurance premium?

The ultimate question is really can the Private Health companies give the same level and quality of service as the NHS if by some miracle the Swine do manage to privatise NHS.
Would the Private Health companies want to replace the NHS?

But what is most interesting is what is the Health Service they are offering, can it be compared in anyway to the service of NHS?

Ignore forgive the Swine for he knows not what he is talking about.

Back to Healthcare. The real question is really very simple. Currently as we have the Private Health care providers, are they in a position of ever providing a health service similar to NHS and would they ever want to do this.

Interesting example is the private industry attitude to wind power generation. The Swine put out some tenders for them to apply and they did not bother applying at all saying the maximum price chargeable is not enough.

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/sep/08/what-went-wrong-at-uk-governments-offshore-wind-auction

Why is offshore more expensive now?
Until recently, offshore wind was considered Britain’s cheapest source of electricity. In the government’s previous clean energy auction, developers bid £37.35 per megawatt hour (MWh) to generate offshore wind power.

But since then the industry has faced a double economic blow that has compounded costs. First, the cost of building and installing wind turbines has rocketed because the price of materials has risen sharply owing to the energy crisis. Then, the cost of borrowing money to finance the multibillion-pound projects has climbed in line with global interest rates.

The Swedish energy company Vattenfall estimates that in total its costs have increased by about 40%. It said earlier this year that it would cease working on the multibillion-pound Norfolk Boreas windfarm because rising costs meant it was no longer profitable.

So the question arises why did energy prices go up and who put up the interest rates?
Swine and double Swine I say

But anyway we digress.

Back to the Private Healthcare.
