One of the great frustrations for any healthcare professional is dissatisfaction from patients! It is not our aim to have to make them wait for an appointment, or to have to say there is little we can do when they complain about waiting times for the referral we have made. As frustrating as this is, it is difficult to imagine what practices would be like without the NHS! The NHS is the lifeblood of UK healthcare, our patients are privileged to be able to access services and care without being out of pocket. To put this into perspective, in the USA, without insurance, you could be liable to a $300 (£250) charge for a simple consultation!
It’s always good to remind your patients how much the NHS does for them – and to help you out, Practice Index is delighted to bring you a new poster to display in your waiting room. Ready to print off and display, this great new poster details some of the most common procedures and treatments and what they would cost them if they were liable to pick up the bill. Focusing on some of the most relatable conditions for your patients, it’s ideal to display in your waiting area to create a talking point.
