Primary Care

As general practitioners, we recognise the crucial role you play in referring patients to the right specialist and, in turn, the right hospital.

What makes us the ‘right’ hospital? When referring a patient to specialist and hospital care you want to be sure they'll be in the safest hands possible. You want to know they'll be cared for by dedicated, compassionate staff, in modern facilities, with exemplary post-operative management.

Our excellent staff always strive to exceed your patients’ expectations for the short time they are in our care.  We understand that everything matters and an optimal patient experience is imperative.

In this section, you will find relevant and useful information for your referral process; you can also find the latest information about our CME activities for General Practitioners including the Goodfellow Symposium.
