Michigan’s Chief Medical Executive Dr. Joneigh Khaldun said Tuesday that no decision has been made about reopening fitness centers even as an association representing the still-shuttered businesses postponed a Tuesday protest of the closures in anticipation of a “celebration.”

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s office on Tuesday would not confirm or deny reports that Whitmer planned to announce the reopening of gyms, movie theaters and bowling alleys before Labor Day.

NOAH Health The Online Access To Health & Medical Expert

Using the NHS e-Referral Service your doctor can refer you for treatment at a private medical facility like a BMI Healthcare hospital

If your GP decides that you need to see a specialist, you can request to have treatment from a list of private hospitals or clinics. The e-Referral Service allows you to choose the time, date and hospital or clinic for your required treatment.

This choice is a legal right and if it’s not offered at the point of referral, you should discuss the options available to you with your GP or the GP practice staff.

If you choose to have your NHS treatment at one of our hospitals in England, all the costs will be covered by the NHS. You only pay for extra personal items, just as you would in any NHS hospital.
