Senior partner at Candesic Dr Michelle Tempest shared in the Financial Times her views on the complex dynamics currently affecting the UK’s private healthcare sector. The recent dramatic move by anaesthetists demanding higher fees from Bupa for their private work, highlights both the relentless cost of living pressures for all professionals, and the inherent tensions of a private healthcare system relying on NHS staff and healthcare insurance reimbursement. A system that has worked over the past decades will need to adapt to reflect the changes in supply and demand, as well as become fairer to all parties involved.
