Coming into Hospital

We recognise that for everyone coming into hospital it can be a stressful and an unnerving experience. At the Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth we are committed to the welfare of all our patients and you will find all staff will work hard to ensure your stay with us is a positive experience.

Making an appointment

Our Appointments Team have a dedicated and caring approach to finding you the earliest appointment possible with the best specialist.

Most patients are referred to us by their GP or another medical specialist as a referral letter is often needed before an appointment can be confirmed.

If you do not have a GP, then we may be able to assist you by suggesting the most appropriate course of action for you to take, given your location and individual circumstance.

If you have medical insurance (e.g. Bupa, Axa PPP, Norwich Union), you will need to contact your insurer to get authorisation for any treatment and, in most cases, you will require a referral letter from your GP.
