How does private health insurance work in this country?

I'm an immigrant, lived here nine years. I like the NHS quite a lot but I was wondering if it would make sense to look into buying my own private health insurance. I'm in a major city so I assume there are plenty of options for that.

What does one get with private coverage? Does one use exclusively private care or do you do a mix of NHS and private? What sort of costs are we looking at if you have no pre-existing conditions?

I know you probably can't answer all these questions exactly, but I'd be interested in knowing sort of what to expect or look for.

Thank you.
