Meet our patient Jon…

Jon decided to go down the route of private healthcare due to a need to get a problem under control that he’d been suffering from for over five years. Jon had experienced a series of poor/inaccurate diagnoses and failed treatments for a skin condition which was affecting his hands.

Jon said: “After failed diagnoses, my main motivator for turning to private healthcare was a desire to prevent long term damage to the skin on my hands. My job requires me to visit food & beverage factories/pharmaceutical factories and they always ask for a declaration of any skin conditions, soit was vital for me to get this problem under control, my career would be affected.”

“The problem first started five years ago when my first child was born and I needed to wash my hands so much more than I’d ever had to before. My skin became very brittle and dry, and eventually very cracked too which led to some bleeding. I visited my GP on several occasions and was prescribed a series of weak steroid creams, none of which were strong enough to sort out the problem.”

Jon had been through several treatments from a GP diagnosis, but had lost some faith and knew he needed to see a specialist to get on top of the issue.

“I was seen within a week of making an enquiry and after a 10-minute consultation with a specialist dermatologist, I was prescribed a treatment with clear application instructions. Within a week, the problem was completely under control and no longer visible on the skin.”

Jon notes that the main way he benefited from private healthcare was the speed of consultation/diagnosis and the targeted approach to fixing a problem by a specialist. As a result, Jon was discharged after a four week follow up appointment.

“Without hesitation, I would recommend Pall Mall to friends, family and anybody else who is interested in sorting out any healthcare issues in a fast and efficient manner. I wish I had gone down this route years ago".

I am a long believer in the NHS. But, through my experience as both an NHS and Private GP, I strongly feel that the NHS are under extreme pressure and increasing demand that mean it’s struggling to cater for patients efficiently.
