Waiting times to get diagnosis

Recently seen my GP who says I should get checked for Parkinson. He has no idea of time scale or where. I live in the Scottish borders. Symptoms like shaking. Unsteady . Memory etc have been getting progressively worse over past couple of years .so went to see GP. Who advised I will see a Parkinson’s team. ? I just wonder if it would be quicker to get a private consultation. Would be grateful for any feed back and recommendations for a private consulting in my area Scottish borders thank you
