All GP Referral Letters, except those referred through the Choose & Book or Two Week Rule method, should be sent to direct to the Outpatient Booking Office, East Surrey Hospital, Canada Avenue, Redhill, RH1 5RH.
Please do not send these direct to a consultant, a 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.
To make this system as easy and cost-effective as possible we would like to introduce an online system for outpatient referral letters. Please could you let us know whether you would prefer an online template to download, complete and email to a dedicated address or whether you would prefer a form you complete online and then press a submit button to send.
Please send all comments or queries to:
Jackie Brown, Head of Outpatient Services on 01737-768511 ext.2824 or emailJackie.Brown2@sash.nhs.uk
