Making a referral

We accept referrals from GPs and other health professionals.

Please complete the referral form and email it back to us.

Please include:

  • the reason for referral
  • the patient's name, date of birth and contact details
  • the patient's NHS number
  • the patient's GP, including contact details
  • a diagnosed condition and current clinical presentations/signs
  • relevant medical history and any concurrent treatment
  • any transport or interpreter services which may be required.

We also accept electronic referrals through the EPR system at King's College Hospital.

We aim to process all referrals within 2 working days of receiving them. We'll write to the referred patient inviting them to contact the department and arrange an appointment.

Urgent/two-week wait referrals

Please state this clearly on your referral if it is urgent and the reason for this.
