Choice of Hospital or Further Info

Yorkshire Clinic

You can now choose to go to the Yorkshire Clinic on the NHS! However, you will be seen under an NHS contract and therefore may not be seen as quickly as private patients. Only some services are available here.



PLEASE NOTE for some specialities (such as skin, Ear Nose & Throat, orthopaedics, eyes) you will be referred to a "GP with Specialist Interest" (GPwSI) first. The GPwSIs can deal with many problems themselves, but if you need referring to hospital for advice or treatment they will offer you "choice" at that stage.

Transport to Hospital


If you require transport to hospital or your outpatient clinic, the system of arranging this has changed. It is now the hospital you have been referred to who arranges your transport (previously this was arranged by the surgery).

Therefore if you require transport, you should now contact the hospital directly. However, this is only available where there is a medical need, and cannot be arranged for other reasons.

If you know you are going to need transport, you should inform your doctor at the time of referral.
