SPECIALIST REFERRAL – What to expect

What to expect when you are  referred to a Specialist?

Tests and Investigations 

The specialist will order all of the tests you need and will communicate the results to you. If you have not heard about your results please contact their secretary at the hospital.

Prescriptions 

If the specialist prescribes a new drug or changes one they will provide the first prescription. You might need to collect it from the hospital pharmacy. 

Sick or Fit Note (Med3) 

If you need to be certified as unfit for work as a result of treatment provided, the specialist should issue a sick note when you leave the hospital. Please ask if you need one.

Follow Up Appointments/Onward Referrals

If you need a follow up appointment or an onward referral to another specialist the hospital will provide it. Please ask the specialists’ secretary if it does not arrive in a timely way. 

In summary, the specialists are responsible for: 

  • Looking after your test results 
  • Providing a prescription when needed 
  • Issuing a sick note if required 
  • Providing you with a follow up or onward referral appointment if necessary
