Consultants are highly qualified and specialised physicians who have completed advanced medical training and obtained expertise in a specific area of medicine. They provide expert medical advice, diagnosis, and treatment to patients, often in a hospital or private practice setting. They may also serve as educators, researchers, or administrators within the healthcare system.

For those considering establishing their own consultancy, understanding how to start up and grow a successful private practice is essential.
