At present our practice usually makes referrals to consultants at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital and Queen Elizabeth II Hospital, King's Lynn.
Choice & Booking
Our practice uses the national Choice & Booking system. This means that your doctor will discuss with you the options for where your treatment may take place and explain how you can be involved in selecting a convenient time and day for your appointment.
Some hospital departments may have long waiting times. Unfortunately this is something that GPs and South Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group (despite having put pressure on the hospitals) have not always been able to improve thus far.
Eligibility for hospital transport is based purely on clinical need - this need generally being assessed by the hospital department to whom you are being referred. Our Reception Team will be happy to provide you with a detailed NHS leaflet on this subject.
