For specific treatments at Bupa Cromwell Hospital you need to be referred to us by a health professional, for others you can refer yourself. Check when you make your appointment if you need to be referred by a health professional.
How you can be referred
Normally you will need to be referred by a General Practitioner, or GP, to a consultant at Bupa Cromwell Hospital who will then be responsible for your treatment.
I live in the UK and have a GP
Your GP will usually write a referral letter to the consultant or, for certain specialties, you may be able to self-refer to some of our consultants. Please check on the relevant specialty page or with the consultant’s secretary before you make an appointment if you do not have a GP referral.
I live in the UK and do not have a GP
You can be referred by one of our private GPs at the hospital, or you can self-refer to one of our consultants. We offer a 'walk-in' private GP service which is available 9.00am to 6.00pm Monday - Friday and from 9.00am to 1.00pm on Saturdays.
I do not live in the UK
Our International Patient Centre coordinators will be pleased to help you or you can call our appointments team directly.

Can I be admitted in an emergency?
If you have an urgent health condition and would like to receive first-class private treatment, your GP can now access Bupa Cromwell Hospital’s consultants 24 hours a day, seven days a week via our Cromwell Direct service.
There are consultants in most specialties who accept emergency admissions and patients can be admitted via one of our on-call consultants. To access the on-call service your referring GP will need to call the switchboard on +44 (0)20 7460 2000 and ask for the on-call consultant for the specialty you require.
Please note this referral must come from your GP, we cannot accept self referrals on this number.
