Vitality GP Select

A simpler, cost-effective alternative to choosing a hospital list.

Choose this option if you’re happy for your Vitality GP or VitalityHealth to choose the right consultant and hospital, based on your specific medical needs.

Vitality GP Select gives you fast referrals and all the other great benefits of Vitality GP, including:

  • Avoid NHS GP referrals – get full end-to-end private care.
  • No need for long waits ‑ book video consultations within 48 hours, including evenings and Saturday mornings.
  • Private prescriptions to your door.
  • An allowance of up to £100, for private prescriptions and some tests.

Vitality GP is also simpler to use because, instead of contacting us to make a claim, the Vitality GP will often be able to authorise your claim instead.

In some cases, the Vitality GP may feel you need a face-to-face consultation to determine the correct treatment, and you’ll need to see an NHS GP and ask for an open referral.


Important information

Use a hospital not on your list and you’ll pay 40% of treatment costs, excluding consultant fees. To avoid this, pick another hospital on your list.

When you include Vitality GP Select in your plan, your Vitality GP or VitalityHealth decide where you’re treated.

To be able to use the Vitality GP service you’ll need to download the Vitality GP app from the App Store or Google play. The Vitality GP app is compatible with iOS7 and above or Android 4.4 and above.
