Head and Neck

The Head and Neck service provides diagnosis and treatment for patients with conditions such as tongue and cavity lesions, swallowing disorders brought on by salivary gland tumours, tonsil cancers and pharyngeal pouches.

The experienced team treats pharyngeal pouches with endoscopic stapling, a less invasive form of surgery.

Surgery takes place at East Surrey Hospital.

 

Referrals

All GP referral letters, except those referred though the Choose & Book System or Two Week Rule method, should be sent direct to:

Outpatient Booking Office
East Surrey Hospital
Canada Avenue
Redhill RH1 5RH

Please do not send these direct to a consultant, medical secretary or any other department. You can of course make the actual outpatient referral letter out to a specific consultant. The Outpatient Booking Office is responsible for processing ALL referrals for outpatient appointments which then initiates the patient’s 18 week RTT status.

Outpatient referrals made under the TWO WEEK RULE method should be faxed immediately to 01737 231733.
