GP referral

Patients require a GP referral to see a consultant at Spire Murrayfield Hospital, this includes when attending our rapid access consultant-led diagnostic clinics. If you are concerned about anything physically abnormal or are anxious about family history of cancer, speak to your GP in the first instance. If your GP confirms that onward referral to a specialist would be beneficial, whether you are insured or self-funding, you can ask for a private referral to Spire Murrayfield Hospital, Edinburgh. 
For further information, contact Customer Services on 0131 316 2507 or email to find out more about our oncology service.
