In addition to the consultation with the GP, your appointment will also include where appropriate;
- writing a private prescription
- providing a referral to a Consultant
- recommending and referring you for scans or X-rays and highlighting what other tests you may need.
You will be provided with an outcome letter detailing all of this and a copy will be sent to your NHS GP.
Any further investigations which you may require during or after your appointment, such as blood tests, scans, ECGs etc are not included in the cost of your appointment. Before any such tests are completed the GP will discuss with you why they think these tests should be carried out and the costs associated with them.
