Spotlight on a specialist: Mr Paul Flora, Consultant General and Vascular Surgeon
When patients seek a referral to a private specialist, the most important (and difficult) question has always been “who to choose?”.
Many consultants develop their own website, which may provide information on glossy facilities and services, but allows little (if any) true assessment to be made of the quality of care or expertise that will be received. This vital information is best derived from the opinions of patients, referring GPs, and fellow specialists. myHealthSpecialist is a web-based forum which provides clear, well-presented feedback on consultants in all specialist fields, from GPs and fellow specialists.
I believe this system is the best available in providing patients with vital confidence - that they are being referred to the right specialist for them. In my own practice, I am seeing an increasing number of patients who have been referred to me following review of feedback received on myHealthSpecialist.
