Was it a steroid injection? He could have had that done on the NHS. If it was a steroid injection, the pain will come back and you can't really keep having them, but it depends on how long he would have to wait for the op.

Paying private means you get seen pretty much immediately.
We used to have BUPA but when I really though about it, if there was a serious accident etc then the patient would be taken to A&E anyway.

I'd pay private if I or anyone close had a serious disease.

It is expensive but boy it can be worth it!

I had my knee replacement done on the NHS.
The surgeon who did it also operates privately....same op same surgeon one free one costs many thousands.
If your friends hip is not unbearably painful I would wait if I was him and spend the money he has saved on a lavish trip abroad.

Give you all a tip.
If you are REALLY desperate for IMMEDIATE private treatment do this.

Phone the private sector secretary and ask who does certain types of treatment/operations, tell you must see someone that day, you cannot stand the pain any longer and you will cut ya throat, say she is ya last hope.
Say you are available NOW, can be there within the hour and I guarantee she will help, fit you in.
Done it several times and with dentist and not just for myself.

It sounds like a steroid injection. They're commonly used for that kind of thing, but steroids should be used with caution because they can have side effects, although I think there's less risk with local injections. It might be worth him speaking to his GP to see if he can have another one later, or if the pain can be managed whilst he waits. Mind you, I don't know how long the waiting lists are these days.
