Referral guidance for clinicians
The QVH referral guide provides reference information to help GPs and other clinicians refer patients to one of our core specialities. In it you can search for specialist consultants, find out their contact details and where their clinics are held across the region. You will also find a series of direct links to more detailed information available on this website.
This guide is updated at least once every six months and circulated by email to GP practices across Kent, Surrey and Sussex. The latest version is always available from the homepage of this website. We welcome feedback on how the referral guide could be improved. Please send your comments to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
