Private Shared Care, Prescribing, Tests and Referrals Policy.
Woodhouse Medical Practice are aware that elements of shared care between NHS and private providers including prescribing, tests, investigations, and referrals can be confusing. It is not always clear how systems operate and what rules NHS GP’s must follow. Hopefully this guidance will clarify these scenarios.
Please ensure you read the below information in advance of attending any private appointments so you are clear in terms of where private and NHS practice cross and allow you to understand the rules that limit what we can do regarding medication or care requested by the private sector.
Please note that as a Practice we do not routinely enter into private shared care agreements.
