Who can refer
We accept referrals from GPs, community services and other hospital health professionals.
From 1 April 2018, we will only be able to accept GP referrals for those living in Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham, Bromley, Bexley and Greenwich.
How to refer
All NHS GP referrals must be submitted using the NHS e-Referral service (formerly Choose and Book).
Referrals sent to the nhs.net mailbox or by post from GPs will not be processed.
Hospital doctors and other health professionals should email or post a referral letter using the details in the referral contacts box on this page.
Please include a detailed description of the problem.
Emergency referrals are received from the accident and emergency department at St Thomas’ Hospital and from other hospitals in south London and south east England.
For emergency referrals, please call the main hospital switchboard on 020 7188 7188 and ask for the ENT registrar on call.
