Non urgent advice and guidance

Non-urgent advice and guidance is available for GPs and other referrers who require clinical support before determining whether a referral is neccessary. The preferred way to obtain advice and guidance is through the NHS eReferrals service (eRS), and we aim to respond within 5 working days.

Please note - advice and guidance is for GPs and other referrers only. Patients should use the contact details in their hospital appointment letter or information leaflet, or call the Trust Switchboard on 020 7377 7000.

Please see below for information on how to access non urgent advice and guidance for each of our hospitals.
