Yes, once you have been assessed your Qured practitioner can organise a referral to a private care provider but not the NHS. If you would like your local GP to be involved in ongoing care following the referral, please let your Qured practitioner have your GP details. This will ensure that your GP knows that you have been referred; and that after your appointment with the specialist, the GP will receive a letter about their findings. If you do not want your GP to know you are being referred, we will direct the specialist to liaise with you directly. Qured does not provide ongoing care following the referral, therefore we strongly advise that you have a GP in place following your referral. A referral letter is charged at an additional £25.
Once you have been seen by a specialist, any ongoing care required will occur between your specialist and you, and your GP if you so wish. Qured does not currently provide follow-up care post-referral.
Qured practitioners can issue sick/fit to work notes if appropriate. A sick/fit to work note is charged at an additional £20 for a one-off booking, but is included in membership packages.
If you cancel the appointment within 10 minutes of booking, then you will not be charged. If you cancel more than 10 minutes after booking, you will be charged 50% of the appointment fee. If you are on a membership package and cancel more than 10 minutes after booking, this will equate to 0.5 of an appointment from your usage.
We do not treat people for emergencies, chronic disease management or those requiring opiate based painkillers, benzodiazepines or sleeping pills.
All of our doctors have at least three years experience as a GP, paediatrician or hospital doctor, so you can be sure that you are in the best possible hands.
