Best way to get private healthcare cover?
Just looking into getting private health cover as my NHS GP has been a joke recently. I mean they always were a joke because it took a month just to get an appointment, but since covid all they do is suggest you to either go private or go to A&E because they don't want to put themselves at any risk whatsoever by seeing you in the flesh, even when it's clear you need a physical examination. Yet when I paid through the nose to see a private GP they were happy to see me whilst wearing the correct PPE. They felt perfectly protected, because they were.
I have a frontline job where I can't work from home and come into contact with lots of people throughout the day. Because of that I wear an N95 mask and face visor almost everyday. Yet despite being around numerous people who have tested positive over the last year who refused to do the same, I have never tested positive. I have no idea why NHS funded GP's think they can just neglect their duties like this. Are the price comparison sites the best bets or can it be better to approach private healthcare providors directly? Any input is appreciated.
