Your guide for referring your patients to us

How do I refer a patient?

You can refer your patients to Newmedica in two different ways: for either NHS funded treatment or privately. Here’s what you need to do.

What’s the process for referring patients for NHS treatment?

Each clinic has slightly different referral processes depending on the CCGs they work with. In general, we’ll ask you to refer a patient in one of three ways:

  1. Email: newmedica.referrals@nhs.net

  2. Fax: 0207 924 6262

  3. E-Referral service (other local referral mechanisms may apply)

You can find the NHS referral guide for your local Newmedica clinic here.

How long will the referral process take for private treatment?

This will vary from clinic to clinic depending on their specific processes. But under normal circumstances, we’ll be in contact with your patients two days after we receive their referrals to arrange an appointment with them.

What’s the process for private treatment?

If you’re referring your patient for private treatment, simply email us with a referral letter, your patient’s details and the treatment required.

Your patients can also self-refer by contacting us directly here. They’re also welcome to call their local Newmedica clinic for details of our private services.

For more complex cases, we’re happy to review patients with dense cataracts, previous trauma, pseudo-exfoliation, small pupils, co-existent corneal disease. We also have glaucoma, anterior segment, and vitreoretinal surgeons available for specialist opinions and surgery.

How long will the private referral process take?

Once we’ve received all the necessary details, we’ll normally contact your patient within a couple of days to book them in for a consultation.
