Good wishes to you all.
Starting up in private practice can prove a hard though very worthwhile career choice. I have been in private practice for 12 years (during which I also undertook some NHS work to pay the bills while I built up my practice from scratch). I left the NHS approx' 4 years ago & I am really enjoying the challenge.

You will find The Arena a great resource of information & support so feel free to jump in & ask questions, read along with debates (some of which become quiet heated).
We are a friendly bunch & rarely bite unless provoked
The threads on private practice
may give you a good starting point.
All the very best in your new venture.
