The pressure on our NHS hospitals is at an all time high.
With demand for specialist services such as breast enlargement and other such cosmetic treatments as high as they’ve ever been, sometimes it’s worth considering taking a trip outside of Buckinghamshire in order to get the treatment that you want.
If you’re struggling to find the right treatment centre for you, but have the funds and ability to travel further afield, then it’s worth taking a look at the other options that are open to you in the rest of the UK. There are loads of independently run hospitals operating throughout the UK, offering a wide range of services that range from simple examinations, such as Ultrasound Scans and Mammograms – however it’s important to take your time before rushing into any decision as you must be fully confident in the skills of the practitioners that work there.
Questions like: ‘How much does an MRI scan cost privately?‘ and ‘How long does Cataract Surgery take?‘ can be easily answered by heading to the hospitals’ website – if you can’t find the answers to these kinds of questions on their site then it’s worth calling them up or even taking a trip to visit the institution, so that you can be confident in the quality of service that you will be getting and the amount of money that you will be paying.
The following four institutions offer a wide-range of services, whilst not being too far outside of the area to travel to:
One of Northamptonshire’s leading private hospitals, Woodland Hospital has 28 single, private rooms, all of which feature en suite bathrooms. Heavy investment in advanced medical systems has led to the hospital being one of the leading institutions outside of Buckinghamshire.
Specialities at the hospital include cosmetic surgery, gynaecology and physiotherapy. Located just out of Kettering, it’s roughly an hour and a half drive outside of Buckinghamshire.
Cambridge Heart Clinic
Combining privately funded resources with the knowledge of the nearby University NHS hospital, the Cambridge Heart Clinic offers world-class outpatient based investigations including: screening, stress tests and echocardiography.
The private clinic also offers interventional procedures such as angiography, electrophysiology and pacemaker installations. Accessible through a number of routes, the Clinic can take anywhere from an hour and a half to two hours to reach from our county.
Nuffield Health Warwickshire Hospital
