Plastic surgery referrals

Who can refer

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

We occasionally accept referrals from hand therapists.

Emergency trauma patients will come to the service through the accident and emergency department (A&E).
