We are an NHS practice and can refer to NHS hospitals. We are fortunate to have excellent teaching hospitals available locally and a wide variety of services. Due to our position most of our patients are seen either at the Royal Free Hospital or University College Hospital. Your doctor will offer you a choice of where you want to be referred. At present we refer using Choose-and-Book and all our referrals are seen by the Camden Clinical Assessment Service who will contact you about your referral. We are obliged to follow local best practice guidelines for referrals.
We have a wide range of additional services available locally including audiology, podiatry, physiotherapy, psychology. Some can be accessed directly without the need for a doctor’s referral. Reception can advise you about these or book an appointment to discuss the matter with the doctor or nurse.
Many of our patients have private medical cover and sometimes request a private referral letter to a specialist. You will need to book a routine appointment to discuss the referral with your doctor or you can discuss the problem on the telephone. We have a list of local specialists to whom we have referred.
*Please do not book an urgent appointment for a routine private referral.
The doctor will make a clinical decision about whether a private referral is appropriate. There is a fee to complete private medical insurance claim forms.
