Hospital referrals

We understand that many patients are concerned about the length of time it is currently taking within the NHS to obtain timely referrals into hospitals for clinics and or surgery.

Covid-19 has affected waiting times for many services and are continually subject to change.

Whilst your GPs and Nurses at Lindfield Medical Surgery are acutely aware of theses issues, there is nothing that we or our staff can do in these circumstances.

Our advice is to contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) and discuss the matter with them. They have direct access to NHS Hospital  Services and can act on your behalf.
