This Market Update examines the private healthcare market in the UK, encompassing a number of medical treatments and services provided by the private sector. Historically, the private healthcare sector was developed under the auspices of the National Healthcare Service (NHS) to complement the public sector. However, over the past 30 years, the boundary between the public and private sectors has become increasingly blurred.

Private healthcare is either funded directly by patients or through their private medical insurance (PMI) policies. PMI is the most popular form of finance, although many people remain unable or unwilling to buy into private schemes. These schemes are usually provided to patients by consultants and medical and clinical professionals through in private hospitals, health clinics or other such units.

This Market Update examines the private healthcare market in the UK, covering long-term elderly care, acute medical care, psychiatric care and primary care. Private healthcare is either funded directly by patients, or through their private medical insurance (PMI) policies. In recent years, UK private healthcare providers have benefitted from the financial squeeze on the National Health Service (NHS), which has led to longer waiting times for treatment and operations; additionally, some procedures - such as hip replacements and hernia repair - are being increasingly rationed. The NHS funding squeeze has led to a growing number of patients choosing to pay for their own medical treatment.

The UK private healthcare market grew consistently between 2010 and 2014, and by 15% overall. The market for long-term elderly care was by far the largest sector within the private healthcare market, accounting for almost 50% of the market’s total value in 2014; the sector was followed, in value order, by acute medical care, psychiatric care, private medical insurance, and primary care.

Demand for long-term care has been growing, driven by the ageing population and number of older people in need of long-term care. The sector is dominated by the private segment, which accounted for almost 90% of total long-term care in 2014 in value terms. The public sector’s provision of long-term care has been falling over the last 20 years and continues to do so; between 2010 and 2014, provision of long-term care among public-sector bodies declined by over a fifth. The private acute medical care sector enjoyed strong growth between 2010 and 2013, and is predicted to have increased further in 2014. The sector is dominated by major hospital groups, including HCA International, Ramsay Health Care and BMI Healthcare, in addition to a number of smaller operators.

Given the financial and resource pressures that public-sector healthcare is facing, it is reasonable to expect the private healthcare market will continue to grow over coming years. Indeed, the author forecasts that the total UK private healthcare market will grow by more than 10% between 2015 and 2019. The market will benefit from rising patient demand and treatment costs driven by the ageing population and more people suffering from long-term conditions.
