We enable patients to find the right consultant

Nothing is more important than the health of our loved ones. This is why we often find ourselves trying to find the very best doctor in a specific field. But how can you find the specialist that is right for you, that has experience with your particular issue and that has successfully treated many other patients like you before? 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.
