How to refer to Respiratory?
E-MAIL unless your patient needs to be seen within the next 30 minutes e.g acute respiratory failure . The address is on Rotawatch (see earlier).
We respond to e-mail referrals Mon-Friday 9am-5pm, almost always by a consultant, so high quality referrals are required. Weekend e-mail referrals are dealt with on the following Monday if non urgent.
For urgent advice, either day, night or weekends bleep 4200. During the day this bleep is typically carried by a consultant.
