Requesting a referral
Our reception team will always ask for a brief reason when you request an appointment, so if you are specifically requesting a referral please let us know. It is possible to use our new eConsult feature to request a referral. In the current Covid-19 crisis many referrals to NHS services are not functioning as they were previously.
We now use the Bristol Referral Service for most of our onward NHS referrals. This is a local team who review the referral to look at the outpatient or secondary care service that best suits your case. This is to support us to find the best pathway. After your referral has happened please contact the Bristol Referral service not the GP Practice and they can check the status and progress of it.
We sometimes also use an Advice and Guidance service where we can contact a specialist for advice on your case in order to decide whether we should refer you or not.
All physiotherapy referrals go to a seperate referrals service.
You can contact the Bristol Referral Service on 0117 900 2566 if you already have an NHS referral in progress. The service is open from 8.30am - 5pm Monday to Friday
