Private to NHS

Hi all,

A while ago I posted that my husbands employer was changing healthcare provider and the new company would not cover me for cancer related treatment or follow up.

After some helpful advice from you ladies I have managed to get on the NHS list for my lovely consultant but at a different hospital.

Before Xmas he advised that I would need a CT scan in March before I saw him again.

Talking to his NHS secretary he needs to see me as an NHS patient before (and if) he is able to make a CT referral.

Does this seem right to you guys?

Half of me is worried about wasting his time and the other half worried the scan won’t go ahead. Because I had a Sarcoma I think he was being more cautious.

Any thoughts welcome

Thanks all
Xx
