How it works

Your step-by-step guide to accessing treatment at Springfield Hospital

1. Speak to your GP

Increasingly patients can now self-refer for certain services or in specific circumstances, such as self-funding patients, however, it's always worth speaking to your GP, optician or other healthcare professional first as they can advise which type of hospital specialist is most appropriate for your particular symptoms. Also a GP referral letter is always very helpful as it will provide your consultant with useful information on your medical history.

2. Contact us

3. Your appointment

We can arrange an appointment within 72 hours or at a time to suit you with the consultant of your choice to discuss your symptoms, diagnosis and treatment options. If diagnostic investigations are required, such as an x-ray or blood test, we can usually organise for these to take place on the same day. 

4. Your treatment

If further treatment is recommended, a date for your operation can be booked within two weeks or at a time convenient to you.


5. Your aftercare

We’ll be there for your aftercare as long as you need us.
