Exciting developments at PPF:
PPF is reaching more and more people as our website stats show. That’s encouraging but we need to do more to become even more effective as the Patient Voice in the private healthcare sector. We have developed a new model of funding and are now making progress towards our goal – refreshing both the style and the information on our website and expanding our social media reach.
So, please keep communicating with us – preferably through the Forum -whilst we work on the next phase for PPF. When we are there, we will be asking for help from people who have used private healthcare, from people with medical insurance who haven’t used it and from others with a possible interest in ‘going private’. We have some exciting plans to include opportunities for participation in discussions to help shape private healthcare.
PPF – why we have this website
Because we believe that private medicine is an important option, we have packed this site with information ranging from how to choose private healthcare insurance, how to choose a consultant and a hospital. You may like to look at video that tells some of the advantages of using the private sector – click here. Do let PPF know if we can provide other information that will help you to now more about private healthcare. Have a look at our sections on your rights as a patient and information on how to complain.
