To seek healthcare in the private sector—i.e., outside of the NHS. Going private means paying for healthcare services to which a patient is entitled for free under the NHS, but for which he/she may wait for months to receive. Thus, well-off patients forego free services to avoid frustration around scheduling and booking delays due to NHS backlogs for non-emergent care and services.
