The sixth edition of LaingBuisson’s Private Healthcare Self-Pay UK Market Report, sponsored by GoPrivate, contains pricing data analysis up to May 2024 and is essential for stakeholders across the private healthcare sector. Tailored for hospital and clinic senior executives, acute medical care providers, private medical insurance groups, and more, it provides crucial insights to make strategic decisions.

Included with the most recent pricing data analysis and 2023 hospital episode analysis, the Report details a market that has grown significantly, driven by NHS waiting times and patient demand for faster access to care. This is underpinned by high demand for orthopaedic and ophthalmological services, with growth also seen in general surgery and gynaecology.

The self-pay market experienced significant disruptions during 2020-2021, impacting all sectors,  and now experiences disruptions in the form of economic pressures and the cost-of-living crisis. Despite these challenges, self-pay demand remains robust, signalling a lasting shift towards private healthcare.

LaingBuisson forecasts steady market growth, with insured patient activity indicating sustained interest in private healthcare. Regarding self-pay options, they remain integral to provider strategies and are expected to drive strong medium-term growth. 

The Report also covers regional dynamics, with London and the South East accounting for the highest regional areas of self-pay. Interestingly, LaingBuisson observed an increase in self-pay demand in traditionally low self-pay regions, such as the North East, Wales, Scotland and the South West.

"The concept of paying to secure rapid access to diagnosis and treatment now appears well-embedded among the general population. A large part of this is clearly connected to NHS waiting lists and waiting times for treatment, which have not improved. "
