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

Outpatient Booking Office
East Surrey Hospital
Canada Avenue
Redhill, Surrey 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 231 733.
