Following discussion with you, it may be that an aspect of your proposed treatment or even the whole treatment is best carried out by referral to a trusted colleague. In such cases, it may not be possible at the time to give you more than an outline of what that colleague can or will do apart from being asked by us to look at your problem.
Referrals to Hospitals may be under NHS cover or Privately. Referrals to other practices are Private. Orthodontic referrals for under 18s are usually NHS.
We will refer in writing, when necessary sending your photographs/X-rays.
Normally you will be contacted directly. NHS referrals may take longer and will be written. Private referral replies to you are usually by telephone and reasonably quick.
