I was in contact with a lady on this forum some time ago who had arranged a private prostatectomy for about twenty grand with Professor Whocannotbenamedhere.
She said the NHS had offered to reimburse 75% of the cost. I have lost her details, so can I ask, in what I believe to be common parlance, is this a thing?
My father-in-law aged 86, is crippled with arthritis, and sooner than wait indefinitely for a hip replacement on the Covid Health Service, is about to pay out fifteen grand to have it done privately next month.
Anyone heard of NHS contributions to such operations?
