https://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/AboutNHSservices/doctors/Documents/What-happens-when-you-are-referred.pdf

If a patient chooses to be referred to a private clinic or hospital then usually a letter will be required from the GP. In this instance please allow at least 5 working days before making your appointment with the private clinician to allow time for the surgery to prepare the referral letter. All private referral letters need to be collected by the patient from the surgery
