We are happy to accept self-referrals. Patients can fill in our on-line form or ring the Centre to arrange an appointment  (020 7251 3322). This makes it easier for patients to be seen and lessens the burden on GPs. We welcome GP referrals too. Referrals may also come from other healthcare professionals including Occupational Health, Neurologists, and ENT specialists and practice nurses.

Whatever the referral route, we work closely with the patient’s GP and send assessments and recommendations following each appointment (although we respect that occasional patients do not want information shared with their doctor).
