Information for health professionals on how to refer patients to the respiratory service.
Who can refer
We accept referrals for any children under 16 with chronic or acute respiratory conditions from GPs and from hospital consultants. We do not see patients with TB or cystic fibrosis.
We work closely with the Evelina London sleep service.
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.
Referrals by other professionals should be addressed to the children's respiratory service and can be sent by email or post using the referral contact details in the box on this page.
In an emergency, please contact the paediatric registrar via the main hospital switchboard on 020 7188 7188 and ask for bleep 0339.
