Referral and admissions
The majority of referrals made to a Priory hospital are through a patient's GP. A referral can be made by telephone, in writing, via email or via fax to the hospital's admission department, who will then pass these details on to the relevant consultant.
To make an outpatient appointment with a specific consultant, please telephone reception on 023 8084 0044, who will transfer you to the relevant secretary.
For further details of our specialist treatment programmes or for a list of staff/visiting consultants, together with their areas of special interests, please telephone admissions on 023 8084 0044.

Environment and facilities
The environment we create for patients is as important as the treatment, itself. To this end, each patient has the privacy of his or her own comfortable bedroom, with television, telephone, and en-suite facilities. Patients are encouraged to have their meals in the main dining room, which offers an excellent choice of dishes. Special dietary requirements can also be catered for. Patients also have access to the on-site gym, and extensive grounds.
