A report by the ONS (Office for National Statistics) has shown that the UK spends a lower proportion of its economic output on health services than most of the G7 countries and that the situation has worsened with spending slowing significantly between 2009-2012.
The report states:
“Total healthcare expenditure as a share of GDP was measured amongst the lowest of the G7 countries (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, UK, USA) with only Italy spending less as a share of their GDP across the series.”
One of the ‘victims’ of health spend cutbacks in recent years has been services deemed to be ‘cosmetic’ in nature.
Therefore patients who struggle with skin complaints such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), rosacea, acne or troublesome spider veins are even more likely to seek help in the private sector if they find the NHS does not offer satisfactory assistance.
Mulberry House Clinic based in Northamptonshire offers a range of skin treatments for various conditions and is seeing a significant increase in patients seeking help for skin conditions.
The company has invested in the latest technology in order to give patients options and help with a wide range of complaints. For example, the latest LED skin therapy has been clinically proven to deliver improvements in acne and problem skin, including eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.
As a result, the business has grown rapidly over the last year and is welcoming more and more new patients.
