Another appointment?

I went privately to see a consultant Sunday. But will the NHS deny me the right to the med the private consultant prescribed. I have to see the NHS consultant tomorrow.

it depends, but most government funded insurances will cover even a ‘blocked’ medication if you get the Pdoc to submit an prior authorization request.

Seeing the NHS consultant would be a lot cheaper. From what I’ve seen, at least in the US, the private psychiatric system is not better than the public psychiatric system. However, if you’re in another country you might want to investigate what kind of facilities are available in the public psychiatric system.
