If a GP or another member of our health care team believes you need hospital treatment or specialist care elsewhere, you will be referred.
Most referrals are sent via the e-Referral Service, formally known as Choose & Book. You will receive a letter from us giving details of how to book your appointment. The letter will include your e-Referral password which will be required when booking your appointment.
Please allow up to 2 weeks for your referral letter to be completed.
If you chose to use Private Health Care, you will be required to contact the hospital of your choice and make your own appointment.
Please note we do not prioritise private referrals (self funding or insured) and they will be treated in the same manner as NHS referrals. You will be able to see your private Consultant without the referral letter and the referral letter will be sent in due course.
