 When to visit us

Your GP or non-GP specialist is always your first step in seeking treatment for any condition. You will be referred to our service if your treating doctor feels that your medical condition requires the input of Neurophysiological testing.  Once we receive the referral it will be reviewed by a doctor and you will be notified of the outcome and next steps. Please allow at least 4 weeks for this process to be undertaken. 
Please note that phone calls from the hospital may appear as a blocked number.

If you have a scheduled appointment you will receive a reminder text message.
Our clinic usually runs to time but due to urgent studies from within the hospital, delays can occur.
