Diagnostics are an essential part of a patient’s health and well-being. However, the current way the NHS completes such diagnostics is often linked with severe waiting times and frustration.

This is leading to more patients going private for scans and tests, and other diagnostic procedures, putting an equal amount of pressure on private diagnostic centres around the UK.

Private diagnostics

In a recent survey, we found that 23% of people plan to use private healthcare in the future for private diagnostics. This is a huge increase and one that can be directly linked to the current struggles in the NHS.

Unfortunately, not many diagnostics are accessible for patients, and often the only option is for them to call or fill in a complicated form which ultimately diverts the patient to other centres.

QHERE can provide your centre with a system that allows you to manage pre-booked appointments as well as same-day appointments, allowing patients to book either directly from the easy-to-use marketplace app. This reduces the virtual ‘walk out rate’ and help retain patients for the future. 

2/5 Brits have thought about using private healthcare for tests and scans in the last 3 months.
