The primary concern of people, who opt for a PMIs, is what could happen if they choose not to. This is their motivation, which causes them to avoid taking any chances with their health. This is why, despite of NHS’ existence, they opt for its private counterpart. They feel that they are more secure if they have both of them, than they would be with just a state administered health policy. Having said that, if everything goes well, you do not have to worry about NHS being incapable of providing you adequate protection. However, although seldom, things could get a little bumpier than we might imagine at first. Here, we try to enlighten you with the scenarios, which could eventually make you realize the gambles you take, should you choose not to complement your NHS with a PMI.

Firstly, with a PMI, the first thing you achieve is that you get rid of the waiting period.  With NHS, you have to wait in a queue of patients, who are due for treatment before you. This wait can turn out to be significantly detrimental to your health, in many situations. Suppose you are diagnosed with an illness you fear is aggravating at a fast pace, or maybe it is a source of great pain or discomfort. However, if it is not strictly classified as an emergency, you would have to wait like all other NHS-dependent individuals do. The danger here is that, your worst fears could come true – the situation could worsen. This is not as uncommon as one might perceive at first and many illnesses and injuries could aggravate, if you are deprived timely treatment. However, even if your condition does not head towards the worst, if it is a source of pain and discomfort, it would hinder your ability to carry out your job and daily activities, both of which would in turn affect your life quite deeply.

Secondly, with a PMI, you can cherry-pick your own doctor or consultant. This could be an important personalization option, since it allows you to carry out your treatment with someone you are already comfortable with. If via NHS, you are allotted to someone you do not get along well, it would be anything but favorable towards your treatment. You might end up not opening up to that individual or failing to follow his or her advice, which would really affect the effectiveness of the entire process.

Thirdly, the private hospitals PMI give access to you are much cleaner than their state counterparts. This may not be a deal breaker to many people but if you have a critical condition or any condition, which could be aggravated by dust, such as an asthma, this uncleanliness could turn out to be quite distressing for you. In such conditions, cleanliness gains further importance, which if not provided, can prove to be detrimental to your condition.

Lastly, we have the quality of services and equipment. In many conditions, especially the more critical ones, the last thing we want is a reluctance in usage of our entire resources. In such conditions, which threaten our life or health, we must make sure that we have the very best of what we can gain access to. The private service of a PMI offers just that, by having the more qualified staff and better, more recent equipment. This is something you cannot be guaranteed with NHS. Since you do not even get to choose the hospital, with critical conditions, heading into this unknown territory is not a pleasant picture to paint.

These situations are not the most likely of events in your life. However, the fact that they have even the tiniest of possibility means that if you are complacent with your NHS, you are leaving room for misadventure to make home. Nobody wants this. This is why despite the existence of NHS, people are increasingly turning towards a supplementary policy. Those who fail to do so are mostly those who cannot afford to. If it fits your pocket, it is one policy definitely worth having.
