You can choose to book a consultation with a specialist directly through babylon, without a referral from a GP. Specialist consultations cost £49 for subscribers and £79 for pay-as-you-go members. The waiting time for specialist appointments is usually 2-3 working days.
Q. How do I book a specialist consultation?
A. Simply email our support team email@example.com, and they will be in touch as soon as possible to arrange your appointment.
Q. Can babylon GPs refer me to an NHS specialist?
A. babylon is a private healthcare service and as such our referrals for diagnostic tests and specialists are private. You can speak with a babylon GP to discuss the referral process and then decide whether you get your tests done privately or get an NHS referral.
Q. I had connection issues and missed my consultation, will I be refunded?
A. No. You need to ensure that at the time of your consultation you have a good WiFi or mobile internet connection.
