Hi, I have seen a private consultant in my area and received a diagnosis of vasculitis. He also runs the a rheumatology clinic under the NHS, and wrote to my surgery to ask them to refer me to him under the NHS. Today I received a letter from the local PCT saying that my GP agreed I could see the first available consultant/one with shortest waiting list. Is there any point in me contacting the consultant or waiting list manager to ask that it be the one I saw originally. It seems silly that he asked for me to be referred to him and then they have said anyone will do.
