I get private medical insurance through my employer.
Recently I've been referred by my GP to a consultant and I stated that I had medical insurance and would like to go down the private route, fine said the GP "that should speed things up a bit. I'll pass the details on to the consultant and they'll contact you directly for an appointment".
It's now approaching three weeks since that referral and I've heard nothing. Is this normal for a private referral ? I'll pop into the GP surgery this evening and see if they know anything but I would have expected some kind of contact by now from the consultant's secretary.
