Just joined your site. Such a relief to hopefully find some support here..

Has anyone out of desperation due to awful pain for over 3 years, decided enough is enough and defected to a private hospital? I did recently, upshot; I have Osteoporosis in my L hip + low spine L4 & 5 linked to having had Chemo for b.c. in 2006. Need a new hip=£15.000. Will the NHS pay? Have a telephne appt on Monday @ 9.30 to ask a GP at my surgery.

Does anyone also have experience of this?

A friend in Wales got referred to a private hospital, he needs both new hips & in so much pain.

Best wishes Helene
