General medicine referrals

Who can refer

We accept referrals from GPs and from consultants from Evelina London Children’s Hospital and other hospitals.

We accept all general referrals for very unwell children under 16 years old for diagnosis and management.

Referrals will be screened and directed to the appropriate consultant for management. We do not perform developmental assessments - this service is provided by community children's services.

How to refer

GPs, hospital doctors or other health professionals should send a referral letter by email or post using the details in the box on this page.

Urgent referrals

GPs can contact the children's assessment and referral service (CARS) to speak to a consultant paediatrician for advice on managing children in general practice and referrals to hospital services.
