55 year old Mike had been concerned about discomfort around his bladder and lower abdomen for a few months. It was mid-winter and, knowing how busy his NHS GP would be with flu patients, he called us to arrange a diagnosis with a local private GP. The GP suspected that Mike’s condition might need further investigation and immediately referred him to a specialist at his local private hospital.
The consultant ran a full suite of tests and broke the news that Mike had feared – he had the early stages of prostate cancer. His prostate gland would need to be removed in an operation, which we arranged within a few weeks, with the same consultant, in the same hospital. Private Hospital In-patient cover not only covered the cost of Mike's surgery, but a week in hospital and a course of out-patient treatment and GP check-ups to get him back on his feet quickly.
