In normal circumstances, we can provide a prompt diagnosis for any set of symptoms following a GP referral, if the wait time on the NHS is more than three weeks. For treatment (when NHS waiting times are more than five weeks), please view the list of conditions covered under our treatment services.
However, for both services, it is important to note that some specialities are going to take some time to become accessible and will be dependent upon a number of factors such as service, consultant and regional availability. The availability of services that involve the respiratory tract, i.e. throat, breathing tests and some stomach checks may have more delay than other specialties. We are also aware that all services across the UK will have varying availability which we have no control over. We’d suggest that you discuss the access in your area with your appointment healthcare provider or consultant.
