How to refer to our services

    Advice and guidance

    It is possible to request advice and guidance if you’re uncertain whether a patient should be referred or you’re unsure of the most appropriate service. Requests should be made via the NHS e-Referral service where possible and otherwise via the NHS Mail addresses found under non-urgent advice and guidance.
