The Christie is not part of the NHS e-Referral Service. However, if you have a patient who you think would benefit from our care, we can accept referrals for primary care.

We accept referrals from GPs or other referring hospitals.

Please note: our DEXA scan service is currently on hold in line with Osteoporosis Society guidelines due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sending a patient referral

Our preferred method to receive is by email at the-christie.endocrinology@nhs.net

When we receive an email referral, our secretarial team will triage this, register the patient on our systems and check for any previous clinical records. The referral along with any previous records are then sent on to the medical team who review all clinical information and agree the urgency. The medical team then feedback to the administration team who send our appointment within the relevant timeframes

If you are unable to email, our postal address is:
