Patient Choice

If you need to go to hospital to see a specialist, you have the right to choose which hospital you're referred to. This legal right, introduced in April 2009, lets you choose from any hospital offering a suitable treatment that meets NHS standards and costs.

You can choose a hospital according to what matters most to you, whether it's location, waiting times, reputation, clinical performance, visiting policies, parking facilities or patients' comments. For more information visit the NHS Choices website www.nhs.uk/choiceinthenhs.

Although most people choose to be seen at their local hospital, BHL is here to raise awareness of the choices available to patients and to help them book their appointments at a convenient date and time, at the hospital or other provider, of their choice.
