Referral process for clinicians

Our department is using Consultmed to manage referrals. The Consultmed platform allows health professionals to send e-referrals to us securely.   

Consultmed questions and technical support:

We do not accept new referrals directly from General Practitioners, however we would be happy to provide advice to General Practitioners should they have a patient who they feel needs to see a paediatric neurologist.

A weekly triage meeting is conducted by a neurologist and the Clinical Nurse Consultant. The new referrals are reviewed and prioritised before a decision or recommendation is made on how to best progress the referral. Patients are assigned to individual neurologists according to their waiting times for new patients.

The waiting time for new patients to be seen by a neurologist is six to seven months.

Referral and appointment process for parents and carers

Request a referral

To make an appointment at our clinic, you will need a referral from your GP, paediatrician or specialist. 

They will assess your child, discuss your concerns, and make a referral to the appropriate service.  

The waiting time for new patients to be seen by a neurologist is six to seven months. You could also speak to your GP or paediatrician about a referral to see a Paediatric Neurologist in their private rooms.

Track your referral

Our department uses Consultmed to manage referrals. Your referring clinician sends the e-referral to us using the secure Consultmed platform.  

Once we receive the referral, we will send you an email with your tracking information. We will update you as we process the referral and book your appointment. 

To receive these updates, please ask your referring clinician to include your email on the referral.  

If your clinician has questions about Consultmed or require technical support, they can contact
