How to choose an NHS consultant – specialist injury solicitors Farnborough
If you live in the UK then you should be able to get medical treatment through the NHS. This means that you won’t have to pay for your medical treatment, although you may want to pay to go private if you feel that your needs are not being met through the NHS. An NHS consultant is a doctor who specialises in a certain area of treatment or illness. If you have had an accident or are suffering from a specific illness then you may want to speak to a specialist who will be able to offer you much more tailored treatment than your GP. But how can you choose the right one for you? The same is true if you decide to make a personal injury compensation claim. You will need specialist injury solicitors in Farnborough, if that is where you live, if you make a claim.
Ask your doctor
Your doctor should be able to give you a list of NHS consultants who are close to your location and who will specialise in the treatment you need. Many consultants will need a referral from your GP before they will take you on, so it is best to start with your doctor and go from there. If you have the list from your doctor then you can do your research before asking to be referred.
Research the consultant
You can try looking online to check the consultant’s credentials and see if they have any past patients who have reviewed or spoken about them online. Find out if anyone you know has been treated by them before and what their experiences were.
Meet with a few consultants
Don’t narrow your choices down to one consultant before you have met any of them. Get your choices down to two or three consultants and then arrange a consultation with each. This way you can find out what they can do for you as well as whether you get on with them and are comfortable being treated by them.
