Same Day Primary Care Access to St George’s Hospital
The Emergency Department at present is under unprecedented pressures, with lengthy waits for patients to be admitted to inpatient areas.
The following document is a simplified overview of the referral pathways and contact information for patients requiring acute secondary care assessment. To support the flow of patients through the hospital please refer to the document to support each other in getting our patients to the most appropriate team and clinic.
Patients can receive same day secondary care access at St George’s upon referral from Primary Care, therefore removing the need for the patient to attend the Emergency Department.
If patient requires same day admission and you are unable to contact specialty, please specify in a letter/correspondence to which specialty the referral was attempted.
