GP and Physician referral forms and process
Doctors can refer their patient for Consultation, open access tests or Healthscreening with a referral letter faxed to 01483 467120 or posted to us at 5 Huxley Road Guildford GU2 7RE or online using our encrypted digital medical referral form.
Please note that our Heartscreen+ screening packages are designed for patients that have no clear symptoms of heart disease, so we would advise that if the patient has symptoms of chest pain on effort, heart failure, palpitation or blackouts they should be considered for referral to a Consultant Cardiologist for a formal Consultation and medical examination.
For patients with or without symptoms that already under investigation or where investigations have been done elsewhere that require a Consultation (Consultants Direct and or some tests), no referral letter is required providing the patient can provide sufficient explanation for the Consultation and that paperwork or data from other organisations (eg discharge summary, echocardiogram result) are available for the Consultation.
To book a heart screen ask your patient to call us during office hours or to complete our contact form using the button below.
Heartscreen Bronze and some of our other tests can also be scheduled on line see our e-health page.
