Information for health professionals

External referrals

Health professionals can refer a child to UHS for assessment for insertion of a gastrostomy by completing a referral form. Please complete the form electronically and follow the referral instructions on the form. If you wish to give further information please include a referral letter.

The quickest and most efficient way to send the referral is by email to the address on the form. If this is not possible, please print out the completed form and fax it to us (FAO paediatric surgical nurse specialists).

Please note that faxed referrals take longer to reach us than those sent by email.
