HiSimply get a referral from your GP to that specialist.You need the name of the specialist.You can call the hospital and talk to the head of orthopedics and tell them the situation for a match. OK, so that is an initial answer….Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent].

I have read the credentials for a specialist hospital near me . The surgeon who performed the shoulder. Replacement says it's fairly urgent will this be taken into account or will I simply ask for a ordinary appointment for the new surgeon as this presumably could take a while.
