A recent poll being carried out by ComRes has found that patients are being forced to knock the doors of private services, as NHS has been making cuts on their services.
The poll, which was being carried out for the firm BMI Healthcare, has made it clear that rationing going on in the NHS is the main cause behind the rise in private services.
Dr. Clare Gerada, the Chairman of the Royal College of GPs, was of the view that there are a number of primary care trusts (PCTs), which have been providing limited access to treatments like, cataract removals and so on.
About 35% GPs were of the view that they do think that more number of patients have started taking private treatments. Dr. Natalie-Jane Macdonald, the Managing Director of Bupa Health and Wellbeing, affirmed, "Customers are telling us that uncertainty about waiting times and availability of non-urgent procedures is leading them to explore the self-pay option".
There is no doubt about the fact that rationing in the NHS has increased. This is the reason that waiting times for certain treatments are also on rise and there are chances that more number of treatments will have the same future.
