That already exists, Cygnet Health Care for instance runs a number of failing private MH instistitutions.
I am talking about simply getting a diagnosis rather than long term care / treatment.

Seems like it'd be much easier to make money out of rich anxious kids.

Well exactly so whats the solution, getting rid of the NHS won't change anything there.
Not necessarily a bad thing if it reduces demand.

Where have I said I want to get rid of the NHS? The NHS is great at some things and bad at others. People are far too defensive over it.

In that case I would suggest Spire Healthcare, they predominantly run private hospitals but they have a number of MH professionals that both diagnose and treat. They are very good in my experience.

The thing about only making health care free for the poor is it brings social stigma. The NHS was created as a universal system so that the wealthy wouldn’t regard it as beneath them. The thinking was that to make it accessible and fair, it covers everyone and is then used based on need.
The healthcare system in Germany is far superior to the UK’s because of private investment from companies...no one goes around with a badge saying that they use free healthcare. Most people in Germany get private healthcare anyway as part of their jobs, and not just the highest paid but jobs in retail/minimum wage too.
