I had AFib diagnosed 10 years ago when I was in work and covered by private health insurance. All was done and dusted, consultations, ablation under BUPA. Then I became self-employed and didn't continue with BUPA because the premiums at the time would have been horrendous.
Then, 10 years on, I felt my AFib was coming back so paid personally for a private consultation with the same EP. AF was diagnosed again but this time no insurance, so the op was done under NHS, by the same EP and his "junior".
Anyhow, I recently asked my GP if I could have a private consultation again for not much more reason than it's easier for me re location. She said that the NHS would only let me swap between private and NHS once, so I could not do this otherwise NHS would not then do the operation. That isn't exactly what she said but that was the gist of it.
Is this correct do you think?
