The referral for treatment as a Private Patient must be made by your GP. Your GP will refer you to an appropriate Consultant Specialist, who will see you for a private consultation. The Consultant will normally need a referral letter from your GP before the consultation.
If treatment is necessary which requires admission to NDDH, he/she will check with the administrator for bed availability and agree a date with you for admission. If you need admitting straight away this will be arranged.
