Referral process

All referrals must be made by a healthcare professional by email using the details provided above.

All referrals are screened by a consultant doctor to determine suitability. Your referring clinician will be informed if your referral is rejected for any reason.

Once accepted, all referrals will be added to a waiting list and you will be contacted when there is an available appointment.

GP referrals are only accepted from these clinical commissioning groups (CCGs):

  • NHS Lambeth CCG
  • NHS Southwark CCG
  • NHS Bexley CCG
  • NHS Bromley CCG
  • NHS Lewisham CCG
  • NHS Greenwich CCG (now South East London CCG)
  • NHS Central London (Westminster) CCG (under North West London CCG from April 2021)

All GP referrals must be submitted using the NHS e-Referral service (formerly Choose and Book).

Referrals sent to the nhs.net mailbox or by post from GPs will not be processed.

Tertiary referrals can be emailed to gst-tr.PainReferralsandAdmin@nhs.net.
