Strike action is taking place in June. We'll contact you directly if you or your child's appointment is affected.

There are rail strikes planned for May and June, which may affect your journey to our hospital and community centres. If you or your child has an appointment booked, please do all you can to attend. Plan your journey ahead and allow extra time.

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.
