When your GP decides that you need to see a specialist for treatment or have a diagnostic test, it’s your right to be able to visit an independent hospital for many services. This route to Benenden Hospital is made possible using the government’s NHS e-Referral Service.
Your GP will tell you if your needs are covered under the NHS e-Referral Service.
Your GP will be able to advise you on the appropriate referral process and requirements for their local NHS Trust. You are not able to personally book direct with Benenden Hospital.
