    GPs can refer patients directly to the paediatric team by faxing a letter to 01737 231780. If a GP suspects a child has a condition which warrants an urgent paediatric outpatient review (within 2 weeks), they can refer them to the Rapid Access Clinic on Wednesday afternoons at East Surrey Hospital by faxing the referral to the same number, 01737 231780. All letters are triaged by a paediatric consultant who will refer the patient to the appropriate outpatient clinic.
