Just wondering if anyone is willing to share their experience of private healthcare in relation to Parkinson’s?
I’ve worked for the NHS as a nurse for the last 37 years and am reluctant to consider alternative options however, since being diagnosed nearly five years ago and as my condition has worsened I have felt increasingly frustrated with my treatment under the NHS (poor outpatients timings, being overlooked/non return of phone calls, lack of responsiveness). I understand the strain on the NHS from first hand experience but am at a point where I feel compelled to look into alternative options.
Does private healthcare offer any benefits to Parkinson’s patients specifically (other than a comfier bed and shorter wait time!)? I’m interested to hear any and all thoughts on this.
