Specialists


Many consultants (specialist doctors) in the UK will not see patients unless they are referred by a GP. Most specialists will see patients both under the NHS and privately. You may be referred to a private specialist either by a private or an NHS GP. An NHS GP can also refer you to an NHS specialist, in which case the fees are fully covered by the NHS. The main advantage of seeing a specialist privately is that the waiting time is usually shorter.
