The fourth edition of LaingBuisson’s respected Private Healthcare Self-Pay UK Market Report delivers industry-leading data and analysis of industry growth trends and the overall competitive landscape. For these reasons, the report is essential reading for anyone with an interest in private outpatient and inpatient healthcare. This includes UK private healthcare providers, suppliers, advisors, investors and insurers.

Following healthy growth which bucked the economic trends of 2020-21, the self-pay market continued its trajectory of market-beating growth throughout 2021-22. Key underlying drivers for this have been NHS waiting lists and NHS demand management. Statistics are now showing people increasingly turning to private healthcare providers to access care. This has been supported by growing awareness of private GPs, consultants and diagnostic services. Furthermore, patients can access services via technology platforms, bringing people into contact with private healthcare for the first time.

Consumer confidence is key to this market growth being sustained through 2022-23. The report states that the direction of travel is not yet clear. Surveys show that factors such as the increased cost of living and growing spending choices may dampen this growth. The private health sector may also struggle to meet demand owing to staffing and resourcing challenges. Nevertheless, confidence that the market will continue to achieve double-digit growth in the next three years remains high.
