From Monday 28 November 2016 the imaging service at The Royal London and St Bartholomew’s hospitals will have a new secure email address to send referrals to firstname.lastname@example.org
In a few weeks the old fax number of 020 3594 3199 will be closed, you will be notified nearer the time what date this will happen. Please could we ask practices to send referrals from a generic nhs.net email address to the new referral email address email@example.com
Please be aware that ultrasound services offered at our hospitals are not walk-in services and ALL ULTRASOUND REFERRALS ARE BY APPOINTMENT. If your patient’s condition is so serious you feel clinically the patient needs to be seen on the same day you should advise them to attend A&E.
If your patients are referred to Whipps Cross University Hospital or Newham University Hospital imaging department, please continue to refer via your normal routine. We will keep you informed of any future changes to the referral process for these hospitals.
If there are any issues or queries, please contact us via the email address provided or on 020 3594 0104.
