Referrals

Making a referral

We accept referrals from GPs and other health professionals in Lambeth or Southwark. We also accept referrals from health professionals at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust.

All NHS GP referrals must be submitted using the NHS e-Referral Service (e-RS). Referrals sent by email or post from NHS GPs won't be processed.

Urgent referrals

Patients can be referred by primary care staff working in Southwark and Lambeth using the telephone advice line (TALK).

Phone TALK: 020 7188 1465

This number is answered from Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 4.30pm. Outside of these hours, call our main switchboard on 020 7188 7188 and ask for the on-call consultant geriatrician.

TALK is part of the Southwark and Lambeth integrated care programme and provides specialist advice from a consultant geriatrician.
