Referring to our services

We are committed to making the referral process easy, efficient and reliable for both you as a GP and for your patients. 
 
Our aim is to ensure that all patients waiting for an outpatient appointment, diagnostic test, elective or planned admission are managed in line with National Waiting List Guidance, the NHS Constitution (opens in a new window) and the NHS Operating Framework. This includes patients with a suspected cancer diagnosis.
