Patient Preference Letter
The purpose of this letter is to request that in the event that I am to be referred to a consultant or health provider for medical treatment, my preference is to be treated by a publicly owned NHS provider. I ask that you record my stated treatment preference on my patient records.
I understand you may charge a small administrative fee for updating my patient records. If this is indeed the case, please can you notify me in writing of any charges to enact this request and I will send the necessary payment.
I look forward to receiving the confirmation within 28 working days that my patient records include my preference to be treated by a publicly owned NHS provider. I ask that you confirm this has been placed on my records. If my request cannot be honored within the stated time, I ask that you please inform me of this by letter, as well as the date I might expect my records to be updated.
