Hospital / Clinic Referrals

The majority of our referrals go through the Woodspring Referral Support Service (RSS).  This is a team of trained staff who will look at the referral letter and decide whether it should be submitted to the Choose and Book Service or direct to the relevant hospital. The RSS team can be contacted on 01275 888960.

If sent to the Choose and Book Service, you will receive a letter from them giving you a choice of providers, dates and times from which you can select a convenient appointment.  All related follow up appointments will be sent to you from your chosen provider (eg Southmead, BRI, etc).

If the referral was sent direct to a hospital, they will allocate you an appointment and send you a letter confirming the date and time.

If your doctor feels that you need to be seen urgently and refers you to the Bristol Royal Infirmary, further information about this process can be found in their patient information leaflet ‘Understanding the Urgent Referral Scheme’.

Private Referrals

You will need to find your own clinician via your insurance company or by contacting a private hospital eg The Spire in Bristol. Your GP will write a letter of referral to the clinician for you to send or take with you to your consultant appointment.
