Mine is £1200 a year but through work and they pay an inflated rate as its a group scheme. It varies but you're looking at about £700 upwards depending on level of cover.

varying levels of cover so premiums can be all over the place. jump on the bupa website...that should give you an idea.

Thanks blackers I'm very much focused on recovering and ignoring you Wink

My private cover is part of my work package, although I'm taxed on this perk, roughly about £250 a year. It covers me and mrsboy quite well.

So far, my consultations, blood test and MRI come in at just under £1000 and god knows how much the op will be and any aftercare.

If you can afford it or get it via work, go for it.

You'd be looking at £1,000 per night in hospital, roughly the same again per hour for a surgeon depending on his specialty, then there's the anaesthetists to pay, plus the surgeons assistants and theatre hire. For even a simple op in private care I doubt you'd see much change from several £K. I think those that have the means to go private probably should, 1 they personally would get quicker (not necessarily better) service and 2 it frees up NHS resources which are stretched at the best of times.
