Emergency Referrals

If a GP has a patient that is extremely ill and they require immediate care then please call 999 and request an ambulance to bring them in to hospital.

If you believe that your patient’s life is not in immediate danger but they need urgent care and you either want them to be seen today or you want advice from one of our senior clinicians then please call the relevant numbers below depending on whether you believe it is a medical or surgical issue.

Referrals can be emailed to the ED at this address: asp-tr.edgp.referrals@nhs.net
