Referrals to Hospital
During the course of your treatment the GP or nurse may need to refer you to hospital to see a specialist. If this does happen, you have the choice of which hospital you want to attend. The choice is huge and you may have a variety of reasons for selecting a particular hospital e.g. Close to home, close to relatives, great reputation, short waiting list etc.
Your GP will discuss this with you and arrange for the referral to be made. Many hospital appointments can be booked electronically now by you and your GP will advise you if this is the case.
If you would like to see a consultant privately, you will need to make the appointment and your GP will arrange for a referral letter to be typed and you can collect it within 7 days, to take to your appointment.
