UK Private Healthcare Self-Pay Market Report 2022 : Analysis of Industry Growth Trends and Overall Competitive Landscape –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Added Private Healthcare Self-Pay UK Market Report: Fourth Edition Offer.

This report provides industry-leading data and analysis on industry growth trends and the overall competitive landscape. For these reasons, the report is required reading for anyone interested in private outpatient and inpatient healthcare. These include UK private healthcare providers, suppliers, consultants, investors and insurers.

After healthy growth bucking the economic trends of 2020-21, the self-pay market continued on its growth trajectory throughout 2021-22, outperforming the market. The main underlying drivers for this have been NHS waiting lists and NHS demand management. Statistics now show that people are increasingly turning to private healthcare providers to access medical care.

This has been aided by the growing awareness of private GPs, consultants and diagnostic services. In addition, patients can access services through technology platforms that bring people into contact with private healthcare for the first time.

Reasons for the growth of the self-pay market

Consumer confidence is key to sustain this market growth through 2022-23. According to the report, the direction of travel is not yet clear. Surveys show that factors such as the increased cost of living and increased spending opportunities may dampen this growth.

The private healthcare sector can also struggle to meet demand due to staffing and resource issues. Nonetheless, confidence remains high that the market will continue to grow at double-digit rates over the next three years.

The effects of Covid-19

The report also focuses on the post-Covid-19 market situation. There is clearly a direct link between the lengthening of NHS waiting lists and people’s appetite to pay for treatment. No one likes unnecessary pain and the push factors can be enough to sustain that growth.
