It is usually expected that prior to your appointment your consultant will have received a referral from your GP or from another referring doctor. This can either be posted, faxed or E mailed. If your GP has given you the letter to pass on, please present it to your consultant upon arrival. If you have other medical reports or test or investigation results please bring them along – it will help to avoid unnecessary duplication and will guide appropriate tests where necessary.
A referral letter is not always necessary, you can self refer- please contact the support team to enquire about this.
After your consultation the consultant will always write to your GP or the referring doctor with a record of your visit and what next steps are to be undertaken.
