Doctors in the Access Gap Cover scheme
This is designed to let you know about doctors who have participated in Access Gap Cover before (or indicated that they will) as well as those who have agreed to alternative no gap arrangements.
Please be guided by the referral process initiated by your GP. If you have been referred to a doctor and that doctor’s name does not appear on this search facility, check with your GP to see if they will use Access Gap Cover for you.
Westfund does not recommend or endorse any doctors. Being included or excluded from this search facility has no relationship to a doctor’s skill or experience. The relationship between you and your doctor will not be affected in any way.
Doctors’ details are supplied to help you make an informed decision when being referred to a doctor for treatment as an inpatient in an approved hospital or day hospital facility.
NOTE: Where a doctor asks not to be included on the list, we honour that request.
- Even if a doctor appears on this search facility, it does not automatically guarantee that they will participate in Access Gap Cover in relation to your treatment.
- Doctors are free to choose whether they will participate in Access Gap Cover on a patient-by-patient basis. This decision remains solely with them.
- Some doctors have arrangements at particular hospitals. Ask your doctor whether they will use Access Gap Cover in the hospital of your choice.
Out-of-pocket expenses may vary from patient to patient. Please ask your doctor if you will have anything to pay.
