Privat medical care in the United Kingdom
Private-sector health care in the UK, where there is widespread, state-funded health care, is a small cornerstone industry. The private delivery of care to paying patient (or their insurer) should be differentiated from private service delivery to paying patient (or their insurer) service delivery, which is provided by the NHS for free to them.
In 1979 the Royal Commission on the NHS covered private health care in the United Kingdom. Private hospital registrations, care facilities and clinical facilities, some of which also contract ually care for NHS sufferers; private practices in NHS hospital registrations, which include care for private in-patients (in paid beds), out-patients and outpatients; private practices of general practioners, general dentists and other NHS contracting parties, which include optometrists and chemists who supply NHS care, but usually also carry out retailing or other private work;
Non-NHS private practices conducted by doctors and dentists and other personnel such as NHS qualifying NHS personnel, foot hygienists and physical therapists who opt to work outside the NHS in whole or in part; treatments by other non-NHS physicians such as Osteopaths and chiropractors.
Private health spending in the UK was in 1976 put at 134 million, excluding abortion, long-term treatment and dental treatment. This represented about 3% of the UK's overall health spending. Back then, about 2% of all emergency patient wards and 6% of all UK Hospital wards were in private clinics and foster home wards.
In 1977 they report that there were 1,249 registered private and nursing homes with 34,546 bed places in the UK. This includes 117 private surgical wards. Back then, 116,564 persons 65 years of age and older were in dormitories provided by or on the orders of regional government, as against 51,800 persons in the NHSgeriatrics.
Approximately 73% of the bedding was for health professionals, 15% for surgeons, 11% for psychiatrists and 2% for mothers. Then there were about 4,000 private hospital bed places used by NHS clients under the supervision of NHS physicians, about 0.8% of the NHS's population.
Approximately half of the abortions were carried out in private clinic and care-home. The NHS counsellors who took up private practices were allowed, where available, to refer their private clients to private bed sites (pay beds), of which there were 4,859 at that date in NHS hospital or as daily clients, or to treat them on an outpatient basis.
8 per cent of all NHS counsellors worked part-time, mainly because they took up a private placement. Parttime advisors earned on averages around one third of their revenues from private practices. With the Health Services Act 1976, an autonomous Health Services Board was set up which is in charge of the gradual removal of wage cots from NHS wards.
It has been suggested to the Commission that the private nature of the NHS has helped and promoted abuses, in particular by preventing patient waitlists. Paid bed was very contentious at the outset, but the Commission's opinion was:'We do not currently consider the availability or lack of paid bed in NHS clinics to be significant from the point of views of the NHS's efficiency'.
About 11% of general dentists' lives in 1977 were devoted to activities other than general dentistry, probably mainly in private practices.
