Referral to a Consultant
If your GP thinks you need to be referred to a Consultant, you will be referred through the Choose and Book system. This gives you a choice of hospital to attend and the opportunity to book an appointment that suits you.
Your GP will discuss the options with you at the time of your consultation. You will then be given a leaflet to take home with you. Within the following 7 days you will then be sent a letter from the Surgery giving details of the hospital choices available to you and instructions about how to book your appointment. The letter will contain your password and a unique booking number for you to quote when booking your appointment. If you have difficulties with this system please do not hesitate to contact the secretaries at the Surgery on 01278 720011 between 9.00am and 5.00pm Monday- Friday.
