Referrals

If it has been agreed with your GP that it would be appropriate to refer you for further advice/investigation/treatment, you may find the following information useful;

What happens next?

Your GP will now send a referral letter to the appropriate department.  As well as relevant information about your current condition, the referral will include information about your past medical history and current medications.  A Consultant will read your referral and assign your case with a priority level and your name will be added to their waiting list accordingly.

Waiting times for secondary care appointments vary greatly between departments.  You can expect to receive notification of your appointment anytime within the next 18 weeks – please make a note of this timeline on your calendar at home – if by then, you have not been given notice of your appointment – please contact our practice Secretary to inform us.

In the meantime, if you have any queries regarding your appointment date, please contact the relevant hospital and ask for the Appointments Office

Please also note - If you change your address whilst waiting for your appointment, it is very important that you let both the surgery and the hospital appointments office know.
