Private Provider requests for investigations under the NHS

The BMA has produced guidance for NHS GP practices that can receive requests from private providers relating to investigation and/or treatment of one of the practice’s registered patients. The practice may be asked to do certain investigations or to prescribe specific medication for the patient. It is important to note that complying with such requests regardless of the GP’s management and treatment of the patient is outside the scope of NHS primary medical services. For further background information on these requests and a template letter to respond to private providers, please click on the following link: Private Provider requests for investigations under the NHS
