How to be referred
Fitzwilliam Hospital accepts both GP referrals and self-referrals.
Fitzwilliam Hospital welcomes both GP and self-referrals for our dedicated and timely spinal care.
We offer expert spinal and neck services to all patients suffering from back and neck pain. These include: convenient consultation appointments to investigate and discuss your pain, on-site diagnostic tests, first class physiotherapy, and a range of treatment options including pain relieving injections and spinal surgery.
Your GP can refer you to one of our orthopaedic consultants for an outpatient appointment to assess your back or neck pain.
Your GP can also refer you to our imaging department for a diagnostic test including MRI and CT scans.
If you are self-referring, (self-pay or insured), you can simply book a spinal consultant appointment or arrange an appointment at our back pain assessment clinic by calling 01733 308 238.
You can also self-refer to our physiotherapy service and book an appointment with one of our chartered physiotherapists. They will assess your back or neck pain, let you know if they think it’s related to a serious health problem, offer advice on how to manage your pain and, develop a physiotherapy treatment plan.
You can also book directly with our imaging department if you have been advised to have a diagnostic test to evaluate your back pain further. A GP referral will be required for any diagnostic test.
