There are many medical procedures which although not in theory urgent, can cause a lot of pain if patients are obliged to wait too long for them to be carried out. Knee replacement surgery is definitely one such treatment. At Hospitals Consultants, you can have your knee replacement procedure fast-tracked and performed in some of the best hospitals in England. If you haven’t heard of this service, just go to http://www.hospitalsconsultants.uk/.
This website contains details of over 40 hospitals and a procedure search and pre-booking function that enables you to look for the treatment you need and reserve your operation. It can be much faster than waiting for NHS treatment and needn’t necessarily cost the earth. A number of hospitals in France, mostly in the south of the country, participate in this scheme, but most clinics are to be found in England, from Sunderland in the northeast to Cornwall in the southwest (click below for more details). Once you’ve found the hospital you want, you pay a small charge and you can get on with arranging your treatment. Payment options include private healthcare plans, other insurance plans and NHS-funded work).
