Referrals to hospital

You will usually be referred to a hospital or other specialist services by your GP or other health practitioner. Exceptions are the accident and emergency unit, and sexual health clinic, where you can self-refer.

Your GP will always offer you a choice of hospital or clinics when referring you, so that you can choose the most convenient appointment time and location.
