Making a Referral

Making a Referral

We accept referrals for both NHS and private patients.

NHS e-Referral Service

All health professionals referring to SpaMedica services from primary care should use the NHS e-Referral service where possible.

As well as offering a simplified and fully integrated booking service, the NHS e-Referral Service is a key opportunity to improve the patient pathway and experience. For referrers this includes, a safe, secure and reliable system, available 24/7 365 days per year. This supports patients in their choice decisions, provides referrers with an easy and reliable way of identifying appropriate services, helps to filter provider services by shortest waiting times and helps optimise the clinical suitability of referrals.

Secure Email & Fax

Where the e-referral service is not available, we accept written referrals by secure email, fax and post, as below:

  • Secure fax – referrals : 01204 441340
  • Secure email – referrals : [email protected]
  • By post : SpaMedica Referrals, SpaMedica House, 43 Churchgate, Bolton BL1 1HU

Important information about referrals for GPs

When referring a patient to our services, please ensure that the referral includes a full medical history and a full drugs and allergies history. If you envisage a surgical outcome, please include information such as cardiac investigation reports and whether the patient is able to lie flat.

Providing this information will help enhance patient safety and reduce delays in ‘referral to treatment’ time and cancellations. It will also prevent our team from having to request further information from primary care teams later in the patient pathway.
