More detail

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea offers a wide variety of Health Services available to patients by self referral, saving the need to make a GP appointment. Please click on the links below to review these.

At times, it may be appropriate for the doctor to refer you for further specialist care in one of our local Hospitals. This may be done through the NHS e-referral system, which provides the patient with the opportunity to choose from a selection of hospitals and subsequently book the date and time of the relevant appointment. All NHS specialist referrals are checked by the referrals team before appointments are booked, as there may be further tests needed or an alternative pathway which is better for you in accordance with clinical guidelines.

There may be occasions when it is not appropriate to refer you through the e-referral system. In this case, a referral letter will be sent to the hospital, who will subsequently contact you. If you do not receive an appointment or acknowledgement within four weeks (or two, if the referral is urgent), please contact the hospital.
