REFERRING A PATIENT

How do I refer?

Please ensure your patients are fully worked up beforehand with appropriate blood tests/investigations. For example, all orthopaedic patients will require an up to date x­ray before they are referred.

It is easy to directly contact a particular consultants secretary to find out availability or to answer any pre-referral queries.

Counselling

As a referring GP please fill in the referral form and will pass it on to the counsellor. The counsellor will then contact you to arrange an appointment. Counselling is only available within the Dorking practices.

Your practice will give you details of our services including a telephone number for you to call to arrange your appointment with us.

When you call we will often be able to give you an appointment date straight away.

There are some clinics where the consultant wants to review all referrals to either make sure the most urgent problems are seen quickest or to ensure that he/she is the best person to see you. If your referral is for one of these clinics then we will take your details over the telephone and we will contact you with an appointment date as soon as your referral has been reviewed.

Dorking Practices & Holmhurst Medical Practice

The above practices have electronic access direct to our appointments system. This allows the practice secretaries to directly book their patients into most of our clinics. In those cases, you will be sent an appointment letter with the first available appointment.

Other GP practices

There are various options for practices throughout Surrey to enable them to refer into us both electronically and via standard post/fax options.
