The right medical expert. Chosen by the medical experts.
Consultant Select – included on all our plans – gives you complete peace-of-mind, because it lets doctors decide who should treat you – instead of an insurer.
How it works
When you need a referral, we leave our expert medical partners Alliance Surgical – an independent doctor-owned organisation – to choose the best consultant for you, based entirely on your medical needs.
The panel of consultants are all independently selected and regularly audited to ensure they always offer the highest standards of care.
You can get a referral via the Vitality GP app or your NHS GP, meaning you can choose the quickest and easiest route for you.
Peace of mind
With the Vitality Patient Charter, you have the right to change consultant within The Panel, if you’re not happy. We’ll also help elevate any serious clinical concerns to The Panel.
Guaranteed high-quality care
Alliance Surgical reviews every consultant on their list, using a panel of medical peers. If they meet their rigorous quality standards, they also endorse them with the statement: ‘I would recommend this consultant to treat my family’.
Fully protected by the Vitality Patient Charter
This is our set of quality-assurance principles which say:
- The Panel will choose the most appropriate consultant to manage your presenting condition.
- The chosen consultant has been quality-assured through a consultant peer review process.
- You will have the right to switch to another panel-approved consultant if you’re not happy with the original named consultant, without any negative impact on your benefit limits.
- You will not experience any shortfalls on fees from the treating consultant (subject to your benefit limits).
- We will support you in escalating any serious clinical concerns you may have during your treatment to The Panel.
