Choosing your own hospital.... is that too much to ask?
We don't think so!
If your GP refers you to see a specialist, you can choose to go to any hospital in England, including many private and independent hospitals.*
You can choose the hospital with the best reputation or shortest waiting time, or simply the one that is most convenient for you.
For more information click here or ask at your GP practice.
* You may not be given a choice when speed is important, for instance if you are being referred for suspected stroke, heart attack or cancer.
