My friend has had an arthritic hip for years, and its got to the point where it suddenly collapses and she almost falls, she's obviously in great pain too.
She has the money for a private consultation but not enough for the full hip replacement operation, if thats what she needs.
However her NHS gp has refused to refer her to a private consultant (over the phone) and she's too timid to ask for a second opinion.
He's told her she can't self-refer. I'm sure there's some way she can at least be seen and assessed privately - has anyone any ideas?
