The Private Healthcare Information Network (PHIN) published new information about health outcomes and risk of infections for privately funded patient healthcare in the UK. This is the first time that information on health outcomes has been published for patients receiving privately-funded care in the UK, covering over 100 independent hospitals and NHS Private Patient Units. Patients can also now get a clearer understanding of their risk of infection at 282 independent hospitals and NHS Private Patient Units, accounting for an estimated 85% of privately funded admitted patient care across the UK.
According to the data 98.8% of private patients treated either in an independent hospital or NHS Private Patient Unit reported improvement in their health following hip replacement surgery, while 95.3% of private patients reported improved health following private knee surgery.
