Mahi Muqit of Moorfields Eye Hospital, has been selected to highlight best practice

The health care industry has had a tough year this year with representatives confirming this during a summit held in June this year. The number of private doctors has declined over the years with junior consultants not opting to open private practices throughout Britain in 2015.

Private Doctor Numbers had dropped from fifty five percent to thirty nine perfect in six years from 2006 to 2012. Junior consultants have advised that they will not be entering into private practices due to the high costs and would rather work in a private hospital.

Interestingly, the number of patients who have private insurance remained at a stable elven percent, though this is believed to also be a number of companies who have taken out insurance or have offered their teams private insurance, which has evened out the playing field this year.

The number of self-pay patients has increased, though many of these patients are looking for different services which they cannot get on the NHS. There are a large volume of patients who require certain treatments which cannot be offered to them through the National Health Service, their option is to consider self-pay solutions through private clinics and practices throughout the country.

Private practitioners, doctors and surgeons have advised that NHS funded work still remains important, but they do have serious concerned on how much NHS work they do on a daily basis.

In addition to this, there are a high number of NHS trusts throughout the country that are considering providing patients with private services in an attempt to generate more income moving forward. The NHS is actively competing against the private sector to improve the range of patient services they currently provide.


Mahi Muqit from Moorfields Eye Hospital is representing private healthcare alongside George Osborne this year in the Parliamentary Review publication.

“The Parliamentary Review 2014/15 aims to showcase exceptional practice as a learning tool to the public and private sector, with the Private Healthcare Edition aimed particularly at leading policy-makers and executives from a cross-section of private healthcare. ‎Several outstanding organisations and individuals, including Mahi Muqit of Moorfields Eye Hospital, have been selected to highlight best practice, representing the private healthcare arena.

‎Editor of The Parliamentary Review, The Rt Hon David Curry, said: “The Review shows just how creative and committed the people are at the ‘coal-face’ of Britain’s economic and social performance.”

These thoughts are echoed by George Osborne, who uses his piece in the Review to state that: “Improving productivity — the amount that British workers produce for every hour they work — is the key route to making the UK stronger and families richer, and it’s the greatest economic challenge of our time.”
