Referrals to Secondary Care

If you need a referral to the hospital, having seen the GP, a letter is sent electronically in almost all cases to the Referral Management Service.  Letters arriving here are seen by clinicians who can determine how quickly you need to be seen.   

Unfortunately, we have no control over this system and so if you want to find out the status of your referral, how long the waiting list is, or where you might be seen, you can contact the Referral Management Service directly on:  01872 226700.

You might find this leaflet helpful - click here to view.

If you prefer to be seen privately, please let the GP know and the secretary will send your referral letter directly to the consultant at his/her rooms.
