Yes the option is available to do as you prefer using the consultation as an opinion without pressure to follow on with treatment. You can be referred into the NHS by going back to your own GP. All consultations will conclude with a letter to your GP automatically as part of our code of practise.
I cannot offer you NHS treatment without prior GP arrangement. I will not provide mixed treatment however between NHS ‘contracted care’ and ‘private care’. These episodes must be considered separately. An episode of care may comprise several contact appointments, or events. An episode commences with consultation, diagnosis and treatment with a final clinical contact ending with discharge. A new episode starts again usually with a new condition but it can involve assessment of an existing condition.
