Your doctor may refer you to a hospital for further treatment. Our referral letters usually leave the health centre within a few days of your consultation. If you have any queries regarding your hospital appointment, you should ring them and ask for the Appointments Clerk of the speciality to which you have been referred. They will be able to give you details of your appointment including waiting times.
The local hospitals are all contactable by calling 0300 303 1573, state if you require Leicester Royal Infirmary, Leicester General Hospital or Glenfield Hospital
We also refer patients using the electronic Choose & Book referral system. If you were referred via this method, the surgery should be your first point of contact.
Patients are entitled to copies of GP referral letters relating to them. These must be requested at the time of consultation with the GP with regards to that particular problem.
