Whether you’re a GP, therapist or dentist you can refer your patients to us for a wide range of healthcare services.
When to refer a patient
Your patients may ask to be referred to us because they:
- have health insurance and wish to claim for their treatment (including mental health therapy)
- want to pay for their own private treatment
- want a second opinion on their diagnosis or treatment plan from a private healthcare professional
- want a health assessment to help them make improvements to their health and lifestyle

Some of our customers have an ‘open referral’ health insurance policy, this means that they will be offered a choice of Bupa recognised consultants, rather than having a consultant named on the referral.
To refer a patient who has an open referral policy, please give them either:
