Changing consultant

Postby Solo » Tue Dec 29, 2015 9:22 am

Hi . Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas ? Mine was ok ish

I wanted to know if anyone knew how I go about changing my consultant? Is there a protocol I need to follow or can I just ring up and tell his secretary?

Thank you in advance

Changing or keeping a consultant shouldn't be a difficult thing. They changed home dialysis consultants at my hospital. I asked to remain with my existing consultant at the next appointment:)
