Referrals for all new babies should be made by contacting the clinical nurse specialist (CNS) by phone. Please see the antenatal and postnatal referrals section for a list of local CNS phone numbers.
NHS GP Referrals
All referrals are to be submitted using the NHS e-Referrals service (formerly Choose and Book) – we no longer accept emailed referrals. Referrals sent to the nhs.net mailbox or by post from GPs will not be processed. Should you require advice about a patient, please use the advice and guidance facility through e-RS.
Non GP and tertiary referrals
Tertiary referrals and non GP referrals, e.g., from health visitor can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Referrals can be addressed for the attention of the cleft consultant surgeon, speech and language therapist, clinical psychologist, consultant paediatric dentist or orthodontist, or clinical nurse specialist
