The service provider in this case is a private group which provides private diagnostic imaging within facilities nationwide. The introduction of the system of direct access for GPs to diagnostic services provided by private groups is intended to improve the access of patients to necessary services and to cut the relevant waiting times. If there is a delay in getting an appointment, the patient, or the GP on behalf of the patient, should contact the provider directly to follow up on the matter.
