This guide to the independent health care sector in the United Kingdom contains over 12,000 entries compiled and updated annually from information obtained directly from local Health Authorities and County Councils. In addition to details of independent hospitals (which includes address, telephone number, matron, director, ownership, number of beds, BUPA scale, PPP scale and facilities available), there are contact details for screening clinics, details of updated private bed accommodation in NHS hospitals, lists of private nursing homes and dual registered homes listed by Health Authority, voluntary homes listed by County Council, major United Kingdom hospital group owners and independent pathology laboratories. This edition has been updated to include a statistical survey of the independent sector written by the Independent Hospitals Association, which includes pay-beds, contractual arrangments and medical insurance and several new narrative sections on community care, acute services and developments in hospital disinfectants.
The book is intended for use by doctors, especially GPs needing to refer patients, consultants, independent hospitals and home managers and suppliers, hospital administrators, drug companies and equipment suppliers.
