Non urgent advice and guidance

Non-urgent advice and guidance is available for GPs and other referrers who require support before determining whether a referral is neccessary.

The preferred way to obtain advice and guidance is through the NHS eReferrals service (eRS). We are working to make sure all of our services are offering advice and guidance in this way. Please check this page regularly for updates.

Please see below for information on how to access advice and guidance for each of our hospitals. If emailing, ensure patient-identifiable information is only used if you are using an nhs.net account.

Advice and guidance is for GPs and other referrers only. Patients should use the contact details in their hospital appointment letter or patient information leaflets, or call the Trust's switchboard on 020 7377 7000.
