Urology Referral Pathways

Urology services in Gloucestershire are under significant pressure. Additional outpatient and diagnostic capacity has been commissioned from GP Care to help manage these pressures.

In order to support us to make best use of available capacity and minimise waiting times for patients, GPs are asked to use the following referral pathways:

2 Week Wait Referrals

Refer to GHNHSFT or other out of county providers as normal

Paediatrics / Kidney Stones

Refer to GHNHSFT or other out of county providers as normal

Andrology

Refer to GHNHSFT, Tetbury Hospital, Winfield Hospital or other out of county providers subject to access criteria and as determined by patient choice

Other Urological Conditions

Refer to GP Care, Winfield Hospital, Tetbury Hospital, Care UK, or other out of county providers subject to access criteria and as determined by patient choice
