NHS could pay for more than 250,000 extra patients per year to be sent to private hospitals

NHS could pay for more than 250,000 extra patients per year to be sent to private hospitals A quarter of a million more people each year could be sent to private hospitals paid for by the NHS under new plans to cut waiting times.

Health service bosses will trial an option for patients to have private treatment if they have been kept waiting more than six-and-a-half months.

Based on the number of people who waited longer than 26 weeks for non-urgent care last year, this could affect hundreds of thousands of patients. The Daily Mail
