Referral Process

If you think you need to be referred to a hospital on an NHS or Privately basis you will need to make an appointment to speak to the doctor. The doctor will make a referral based on their clinical decision, please do not make a private appointment before you have spoken to the doctor.


If the doctor refers you on the NHS this may be an Electronic referral and the paperwork will be given to you by the doctor in the surgery, via a text message if you have a smart phone or emailed to you.

You can then arrange your own appointment either by phone or electronically.  If no appointments are available to you please click or ask to be deferred to the provider this will put you on the hospital list to be contacted when appointments are available.

Private Work

Private Letters/Forms

If you require a letter from a doctor you will need to book a telephone consultation to request this.  Please note simple letters are chargeable and are payable in advance.

If you have a form that needs completing by a doctor please drop these at reception by prior arrangement.  These will be sent to the secretaries who will contact you with the appropriate fee.  Please note the fee is payable before completion.

If you wish to speak to our secretarial team please call 01283 845555 and press option 4
