The right medical expert for you, chosen by medical experts.
Consultant Select gives you complete peace of mind, by putting your treatment path in the hands of the consultants. Once you get an open referral from your Vitality GP or NHS GP, we pass your details to our independent consultant panel. Based strictly on your medical needs, they choose the best and most convenient consultant for you, leaving you with one less thing to worry about.Consultant Select is a more cost effective way to access private healthcare, because it streamlines the treatment path and makes it easier. However if you want to be treated at a particular hospital, you can also select a hospital list to add to your plan.
How it works
To guarantee quality of treatment, all consultants are reviewed by an independent panel of their peers. They endorse every consultant with the statement: ‘I would recommend this consultant to treat my family’.

What exceptional circumstances may impact my wait/travel time for a consultation?
The Consultant select Panel covers virtually all specialties of medicine and surgery. Occasionally, there may be instances for rural locations, or for cases which require especially complex or specialist care (typically at sub-specialty level), when a member may wait or travel slightly longer for a consultation. These locations include the far South West and North East of England, and parts of Wales, Scotland and the Lake District. Please contact VitalityHealth directly if you have any questions about coverage in your area.
If a Panel consultant is not available, for any reason, we will help you find a consultant from our broader base of over 20,000 recognised consultants.
