GPs told to refer patients to private sector in bid to cut local trust’s waiting times


Every doctor can and should refer EVERYONE who they feel it is necessary needs a specialist opinion. It is the job of the CCG/NHSE/someone else to sort out. DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS ADVICE NOT TO REFER. The GMC/NHSE/CCG will not give you any support if you do not refer or delay the referral. Not your problem at all.
