Referral Process

All referrals for our services must be made by your general practitioner or medical specialist.

Normally the referral is sent by your doctor directly to us.  

Once your referral is received by us, it is quickly reviewed and all the necessary consultations and tests arranged. An appointment schedule will be posted to you.  If your doctor thinks that you need an urgent consultation or test, he or she will contact us directly and arrangements will be made to see you as soon as possible.  

We require your address and phone number to make your appointments, therefore it is very important that your personal details are kept up to date at your doctor’s surgery.  If your doctor gives you the referral, please contact us to make an appointment
