A number of transport strikes are due to take place this February. If you or your child has an appointment at one of our hospitals or community centres, please plan ahead and do all you can to attend. If you need to cancel your appointment, please contact your clinical team.

Neurology referrals

Who can refer

We accept referrals from hospital-based paediatricians and other specialists.

Usually, we do not accept referrals directly from GPs unless they have had a recommendation from secondary providers to make the referral.

How to refer

Please address your referral to the general neurology service and send using the details in the referrals contacts box on this page. 

For routine neurological problems (such as non-complex epilepsy, first seizure, non-complex headache), please refer to a local general paediatric service or general children's medicine if they reside in Lambeth or Southwark.

Urgent or emergency referrals/advice

Please contact the paediatric on call neurology registrar through the hospital switchboard (020 7188 7188) bleep 1148/1183 and follow it up with the paediatric neurology referral form (Word 51Kb). Please note, this form should not be used for outpatient referrals.
