Patient Referral Centre
Referrals are accepted from General Dental Practitioners, Community Paediatricians, General Practitioners and local Hospital Consultants. Referral procedures are made quick and simple with our referral packs in full accordance with General Dental Council Guidelines. Please contact us for supply of referral packs or forms required.
When to Refer
We can advise if you have any doubt whether a referral should be made. The rate of malpractice claims in dentistry and other medical sectors in on the increase, and misdiagnosis or failure to refer are among the main reasons such claims are made. We are particularly keen to encourage referral of suspicious lesions or growths and have the expertise to handle diagnosis and treatment of these areas. In all instances, we are happy to discuss the necessity for referral of individual cases.
How to Refer
Referral packs which can be requested and can be held at your clinic ready for use. These comply with General Dental Council Guidelines and contain the necessary referral forms, our contact details and guidance for your patient. Our preferred appointment method is by telephone 01633 279992. Forms may be faxed to us on 01633 761555. Please remember to advise us of any special circumstances including allergies and disabilities.
