Private Referrals

If you wish to be referred to a specialist privately as opposed to one, on the NHS, please advise the doctor during your consultation. 

Your private referral letter should be available to pick up from reception one week later for you to arrange your appointment. 

Please note that you will be liable for any costs arising as a result of the referral and do not assume that any medication prescribed privately will necessarily be converted to an NHS prescription.
