Patient Referrals from Hospitals

transfer of workload

Referrals are now to Whitehills Community Hospital

Posted: 10 September 2018 · Practice news

Unfortunately due to practice GP recruitment difficulties and increasing workloads the GPs at Academy Medical Centre are no longer able to accept patient referrals from Hospital consultants for the following follow up appointments:

  • Complex dressings
  • Suture removal
  • Hep B Immunisation of babies

The GPs have written to the appropriate consultants in the following departments informing them of their decision:

  • Plastic Surgery
  • Dermatology
  • General Surgery
  • Paediatrics

These departments should make the necesary arrangements for you to return to either their own department or arrange for treatment locally at Whitehills Community Hospital.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause but we no longer have the capacity to arrange appointments for this.
