What is Consultant Select from Vitality Health?

Consultant Select is a hospital option offered by Vitality Health. When you need to see a specialist the Vitality claims team will let you know which consultant to see. It is not a “hospital list” in the traditional sense but it is classed as a treatment pathway.

How does the Consultant Select option work?

When you need to see a specialist you obtain an open referral from your NHS GP or via the Vitality GP app. You then contact Vitality Health and their member care team will give you a choice of 3 consultants from their preferred list. You will then book an appointment with the consultant that you have chosen. Vitality have a comprehensive consultant network. You will be able to see a specialist within 10 days within a 40 mile radius of your home.

Under the Vitality Patient Charter, you have the right to change to another preferred consultant from their network if you are unhappy. All of the Vitality Health preferred consultants have been quality-assured and rated highly using their intelligent consultant ranking tool.

If your condition is deemed as high risk there is an Urgent Care Pathway.  This means that you are seen as quickly as is clinically required. High risk conditions include potential cancer cases and are defined by the Vitality Health Clinical Operations team.
