For many GPs, making the transition to private practice is as much about changing their style of consulting as it is the practical challenges of running a separate service.

With UK patients used to free or 'no-cost' healthcare services on the NHS, introducing a level of payment introduces a new dynamic for clinicians.

In an NHS setting, patients often enter the room with a sense of entitlement (despite making no direct financial contribution) - and so private sector charge introduces a new dynamic.

And whilst collecting payment for a consultation might be straightforward enough, private consulting introduces other challenges, such as:

  • Upfront or deferred payment
  • Self pay or insurance (or both)
  • How to charge for additional services such as pathology, or letter writing
