Well, this is what we are here for. Share your experiences on Gooddoctor.com, and read other patients' recommendations to help you make an informed decision.

e-Referrals with the NHS

Under the NHS e-Referral Service, you can choose the hospital or clinic where you would like to receive treatment, as long as your GP feels that you need to visit a particular hospital or clinic to receive appropriate medical treatment.

If you ask your GP to refer you to a specialist, they will probably suggest that you try various tests or treatment options first to see whether your condition improves. A specialist will only see you with a referral letter from your General Practitioner.

Ask for an Open Referral

If you are insured with a private medical insurance company, you will usually have to see your GP first. Your GP can then issue you with an Open Referral, a letter referring you to a specialist, but without naming the specialist. This will allow you to choose and make an appointment with a specialist of your choice.

You will still need to check that the specialist you choose is accepted by your private medical insurance company. Call them and inquire to make sure.
