Referred to see a Specialist?

There are many questions relating to what happens next following a GP referral.

Please see below leaflet that gives guidance to the regular questions that we are often asked such as:

  • Why have I been referred?
  • How will I hear about where and when the appointment is?
  • What happens if I need a test or procedure?
  • What happens if I need new medicines?
  • Who supplies a fit note if I am unable to work?
  • What if I need a follow up appointment?
  • What do I do if I have any questions?

There is also a checklist on this leaflet that you can take with you to your specialist appointment. This will assist with making sure you have all you need.
