Do I need a GP referral?

It is likely that you have been referred by your GP or a health professional; however it is not necessary and it is just as simple to come to Droitwich Knee Clinic directly – we will even inform your GP for you. When you contact us we will arrange a consultation for you to visit one of our specialists, no long waiting times and to suit you at your earliest convenience. The simple pricing structure will be explained to you during your appointment, and an early diagnosis and expert opinion will be assured, followed by a detailed treatment plan.

Similarly if you are using private health cover, although it is preferential for the Insurance Company to have a GP referral first, you may book your appointment to us prior to the referral being sent, just keep the company informed.
