Private Consultations and continuation of care
Some patients are choosing to see a private Consultant, who will then provide an opinion and/or treat a patient in the private sector, offering ongoing treatment for that particular condition.
In this situation, that Consultant maintains clinical responsibility for the patient regarding that condition. Until the consultant discharges the patient, that episode of care continues, and the clinical responsibility remains with that Consultant. Should there be a need to prescribe, the Consultant should prescribe privately for their private patient.
A private prescription cannot be exchanged for an NHS prescription and our GPs cannot issue prescriptions in such a situation, as they are not clinically responsibility for managing that particular condition.
The Practice will be closed for training between 1.30pm - 5.30pm on Thursday 13th July 2023.
