If you are a returning patient with a new injury or condition you will require a new referral.
If you are seeing your OSV surgeon for review of a pre-existing condition and your referral has expired, you will require a new referral. GP referrals are usually valid for 12 months from the date of attendance and specialist referrals are valid for 3 months. Please ask our staff upon booking if you are unsure whether you require a new referral.
If you have a new injury or condition and have had X-rays or other scans, please bring them with you to your appointment. Your OSV surgeon may also recommend further scans or investigations if required.
