    I don't have any pre-existing conditions fortunately, but I've found that I'm more susceptible to injury now as I'm getting older and I just want to make sure I can get treating quicker rather than being on a massive waiting list where someone who is well overweight and never worked a day in their life is ahead of me.

    In most cases you'll go back and use the NHS facilities anyway as BUPA just cherry pick the profitable sidelines of Healthcare. If you want to be bumped up the list for an operation, pay for an initial Private Consultation on referral from your GP.
    This is becoming increasingly impossible. Commissioners (PCTs) are insisting on a chain of NHS consultations: GP to outpatients to surgery.

    If you or spouse work or have ever worked for a public sector employer take a look at C S Health. Can't speak highly enough of them. Last year I was able to schedule my (had quite a few, MRI scans etc..) appointments largely to avoid losing any paid time. So the insurance has paid for itself really.
