Referral for Further Treatment & Investigation

From time-to-time, our GPs may feel it appropriate to refer you to see a specialist consultant at one of the local hospitals.

There are sometimes lengthy waiting times for patients to be seen following referral by the GP, and there may occasions where the wait is medically unacceptable, for example your condition may be deteriorating. In these instances, your GP may ask the hospital to expedite your appointment. If you find the wait is too long we would ask that you contact the Practice Secretary and ask if the GP can expedite your referral.

Please DO NOT make an appointment with the GP for this purpose.
