Your doctor may refer you to a hospital for further treatment. Our referral letters usually leave the health centre within a few days of your consultation. If you have any queries regarding your hospital appointment you should ring and ask for the Appointments Clerk of the speciality and hospital to which you have been referred. They will be able to give you details of your appointment including waiting times. Leicester Royal Infirmary, Leicester General Hospital & Glenfield Hospital are all part of The University Hospitals of Leicester (known as UHL).

We also refer patients using the electronic Choose & Book referral system. If you were referred via this method, the surgery should be your first point of contact.
Patients are entitled to copies of GP referral letters relating to them. These must be requested at the time of consultation with the GP with regards to that particular problem.
