Referrals/Patient Choice

If your GP needs to refer you for a physical or mental health condition, in most cases you have a right to choose which hospital or service you go to, which includes many private and NHS hospitals that provide services to the NHS. You may also choose your clinical team led by a consultant or named healthcare professional.

If you don’t want to make a choice and would prefer to go to the hospital you normally go to, that’s fine too. Your choice of hospitals will depend on the type of specialist you need to see, but there is a choice for most medical conditions.

Most patients in our practice prefer to be referred to the following local hospitals:

  • Dorking Hospital (, Dorking
  • Epsom Hospital, Epsom
  • East Surrey Hospital, Redhill
  • Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford
