St Benedicts Private Health Insurance
St Benedict’s Private Hospital is a private health care centre dedicated to the best quality of health care around.
Our private medical centre is an alternative to the UK’s NHS hospitals for those who believe their health to be the most important thing.
NHS hospitals in particularly have seen their resources stretched as of late, particularly the Accident and Emergency (A&E) departments. To ensure that hospitals are able to continue providing the health service that they do, it’s important to only visit when it’s absolutely essential.
A&E departments are for accidents and emergencies only. Should you have a cold or flu-like symptoms, it should be your GP that you refer to. Likewise, if you have subtle aches and pains, you should again consult your GP rather than taking up the A&E staff’s resources. It is for potentially life-threatening accidents and injuries that need immediate care.
Should your GP deem it necessary for you to see a specialist, you will often be referred to the hospital. This could just be the hospital most local to you or your GP, though you can often choose to be referred to a specific hospital, and can even choose to be referred to a private hospital – such as St Benedict’s – under a private health care plan.
At St Benedict’s, we keep our private medical cover members to a minimum, to ensure our resources aren’t stretched, and offering the best service.
