Please feel able to refer patients to us for advice. It is very helpful to have a standard primary care summary – such as might be used for visiting to cover key areas of patient history and medication.
If your patient does not wish to book a consultation, we will not offer patient specific advice but will selectively provide generic suggestions.
Where patients self-refer, we will provide them with our advice and on occasions an opinion. We appreciate clinical responsibility and recognise that another healthcare professional and particularly the NHS is under no obligation to follow this advice. Patients are offered private prescriptions and investigations where appropriate. Onward referral will be within the independent sector.
