With up to 75% of private patients being reported to be aged between 20 and 39, it’s no surprise to hear that millennials favour private appointments over the NHS. It has recently been made clear that young people prefer going to a private GP where they will receive a same day service in oppose to waiting weeks for an appointment.
Private General Practice Vs NHS General Practice
The survey that was taken showed us that it is an equal number of both male and females who attend a private appointment, where as with the NHS women dominate appointments. From the survey that was completed by DocTap, it showed that on average a male visits a NHS GP just four times a year, where a women’s average is six times a year.
With further details in the survey showing that private appointments with GPs lasted around 15 minutes, and NHS GP appointments usually allocated between 8-10 minutes, people felt like they were being cared for better after getting extra time to explain their reason for the visit.
In conclusion to the survey that was completed by DocTap, millennials aged between 20 – 39 would rather pay the cost of a private general practice to receive a same day appointment. Rather than waiting weeks to be seen, young people are much more quicker to act on their health and prefer to be seen on the same day by a doctor. The survey also showed that young people are happy to pay for a private services if it meant that they have a better chance of being seen by the same doctor each time they visited the practice.
Rather than being rushed in and out of appointments and waiting weeks to be be seen, people aged between 20 – 39 would rather pay the charge of going private where they are given more time with a doctor, same day appointments and confidence to speak.
