All Private Hospitals in the UK (ie hospitals not part of National Health Services) have agreed to offer beds/services to the NHS at cost, effective 21/3.

This will add about 8,000 beds for NHS. I imagine all elective stuff that can be postponed at the hospitals has been to free up capacity.

These aren't "membership hospitals for the rich", but they are hospitals that bill private insurance or bill patient's directly for services.
