Private Healthcare Referral for an Online Mental Health Assessment

Thinking of booking an online mental health assessment? If you’re feeling unwell or suffering from any ongoing mental health symptoms it’s best to contact your GP first. After discussing your condition, your GP can then decide whether or not you require a referral for further specialist mental health assessment or treatment.

Although your GP feels as though you would benefit from a specialist opinion or mental health treatment, unfortunately, the reality of hospital waiting times could long outweigh your needs. This is where the option to go private could be best. And where One Private Healthcare could step in to help. Book a mental health assessment online, with One Private Healthcare.

Steps to Booking an Online Mental Health Assessment

Private Healthcare Referral Process

If you are willing to pay for your treatment and are seeking the path of private healthcare, you will first require a GP Referral. On request, a GP will write a letter of referral to a private consultant or specialist explaining your condition and your medical history.

Your GP will only refer you to a specialist if they believe that specialist assessment or treatment is necessary. If they do not think it is, they do not have to refer you – either privately or on the NHS.

How does the online mental health assessment – appointment system work?

One Private Healthcare’s online mental health appointment system follows 4 simple stages.

First things first, you must discuss your referral with your GP. Once you have your GP referral the first step is to book an available appointment.

    Cost of Private Health Care

    In the same way that patients have rights and responsibilities when using the NHS, they also have privileges and consequences attached to receiving private health care.

    The most obvious consequence of receiving private health care is the cost attached which may be considerable. The costs do not simply cover the doctor’s time but the whole infrastructure supporting the private health service including the provision of staff premises and any investigations or procedures undertaken. Patients are advised to seek full information on all potential costs prior to the start of treatment.

    Referral Process

    Consultants do not normally see new patients privately without a referral from their GP.

    GPs asked to refer patients for private health care will provide a referral letter in a timely manner. However, patients should note that the urgency with which the referral is made is according to medical need only. It is not the practice policy to recommend particular hospitals or consultants and patients should research this carefully prior to making their choice. A list of local private hospitals is given below.
