Referrals to a Specialist

Whilst in the majority of cases our private doctors can provide treatment directly, there are some instances where it is advisable to seek the opinion of a doctor or other healthcare professional for specialist treatment.

DocTap GPs are ideally placed to advise you on which type of specialist to see and to make a referral to them. We don't receive funding from any private consultants or clinics so you can be assured that if a doctor suggests a referral it is because they think that this is the best way to sort out your problem. 

There is no limit to the range of specialist that your doctor can refer to you. No matter how unusual or complicated the problem we can make the appropriate GP referral. Our doctors can arrange rapid referrals and even same day assessments for urgent problems.  Unlike most private GP surgeries we do not charge for GP referral letters. We can also provide these referrals based on a telephone consultation, reducing the need for travel and face-to-face interaction.

Should you require any further investigations such as blood tests or scans then your doctor can also arrange these for you.

All our referrals are private referrals, we cannot refer into the NHS

Who can you refer to?

As a private GP surgery, we are unable to refer into the NHS. However, we are happy to provide a letter to your NHS GP, explaining our recommended actions. Many patients have found this helpful in subsequently obtaining a referral from their NHS GP. There is no extra charge for this letter.

If you have private medical insurance it may well be that they will cover your treatment. Please check with your health insurer for details.

With prices from just £49, some of the best qualified general practitioners in London and contacts with specialists from all areas of medicine, DocTap can quickly set you on the right path to recovery.
