Purpose of this Site  

We are a specialist medical directory site for GPs and patients and those Specialists who have registered with us:
•    for GPs and Specialists to recommend Specialists to be included in the Site Listings; and
•    for GPs, Specialists and patients to search the Site Listings.


This Site also permits GPs to share certain information amongst themselves and Healthcare Organisations to have Clinic Pages and Specialist Listings.  The Site is open to patients to view Site Listings. Additional or alternative facilities and functions may be added to this Site in the future and/ or the Site may be open to different categories of users in which case these Terms and your rights of access may be varied. We are not, however, obliged to add any additional features or functionality or to make our Site available to anyone other than our current membership of medical practitioners at any time.

How to obtain an entry in the Site Listings what types of entry are available  
In order to obtain an entry in the Site Listings (searchable by patients), you will need to be recommended via this Site by a GP or another Specialist.  There are 3 types of entry in the Site Listings as follows:

•    NHS only (Basic Listing).

•    NHS and private (Full Membership)

•    Private only (Full Membership)


Each offers the option of an online profile, as described in more detail below.  ‘NHS and private’ or ‘Private only’ memberships require that a subscription fee is paid and allows for more profile features and membership benefits.  Registering for a Full Membership also allows you to become a registered member with us and access additional members-only benefits which are provided at The Site’s discretion. The following features are included in a Basic Listing and Full Membership:

•    we will send you an invitation by email to the address which we have been provided with by the person recommending you or which we have found through publicly available sources, asking you whether you want to retain your Basic Listing, register for Full Membership or whether you would like us to remove your Basic Listing. We will also include details of how to respond to that invitation, including a link to the Site Registration Process;
•    if we do not receive a response from you, you will remain on the Site Listings with a Basic Listing for so long as we determine.

•    follow the steps in the Site Registration Process in the invitation we send to you; or
