Hospital Referrals (Choose and Book)
Your GP may need to refer you to a hospital to be seen by a specialist. You now have a “choice” and will be given contact details for making your appointment.
- You can choose any NHS hospital
- You can choose the date and time of your appointment.
- The referral is done electronically so there is less chance of it getting lost in the post.
Medical examinations for special purposes e.g. HGV and PSV licences, pre-employment, fitness to travel etc are undertaken during surgery times at the discretion of the doctor.
Other forms such as private medical certificates, passport application forms, food handling certificates, child-minder forms etc may also be submitted for completion. You will be charged a fee for all non-NHS services and are advised to check on the level of payment before such forms are completed. Please ask the receptionist for details.
