Who can refer
The vascular service and all our sub-specialties take referrals from local GPs and tertiary referrals from any other hospital.
GP referrals should be addressed to a named consultant vascular surgeon.
Lymphoedema (non-cancer) referrals should be addressed to Matthew.Waltham@gstt.nhs.uk
Referrals from other hospitals must include a completed Inter-Provider Minimum Data Set or ensure that one is sent within 48 hours of referring a patient.
Ischaemic limbs - patients with rest pain, ulceration or gangrene should be referred urgently (see below) while those with claudication can be referred routinely.
Please call the on-call vascular surgeon, tel: 07717 513 348.
