Metabolic bone clinic referrals

 

The metabolic bone clinic accepts both GP and tertiary referrals.

All patients will be booked in for a DEXA scan prior to their first outpatient appointment.

NHS GP referrals

All NHS GP referrals must be submitted through the NHS e-Referral Service (e-RS). Referrals sent by email or post from NHS GPs will not be processed.

Should you require advice about a patient, please use the advice and guidance facility through the e-RS.

Non GP and tertiary referrals

Please email your referral to gst-tr.rheumandlupus@nhs.net.

To help us book your patient into the most appropriate clinic, please provide as much information as possible. We may contact the patient before offering an appointment to make sure they're seen at the most suitable clinic.

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.
