No: This is a confidential service. You do not need to tell anyone you are contacting us. The very fact that you are using our service suggests that you do not feel able to use existing NHS services. If you want to let your general practitioner know you have attended you may indicate this when you register with GPH and we can then write to him/her with your consent. We hope that you have a general practitioner that you can trust with your problem, but sometimes this is not possible – we will always respect that. In some circumstances not being able to communicate with your GP may limit the treatment options available for safety reasons, e.g. prescribing.
