Dear customer, Thanks for your reply. Best is to ask your general practitioner. If the GP thinks you need specialist treatment and you want to pay for it privately, they can write a letter of referral to a private consultant or specialist explaining the condition and the medical history. They can also suggest a specialist who offers treatment in the NHS hospital. Or you can use the Bupa on demand and utilize the GP services and create an appointment. You can then ask the GP about getting treatment with self pay in a NHS hospital. http://www.bupa.co.uk/health/self-pay-treatments/gp-services Take care.
