We are now using an online referral system ensuring speed of access and accurate information transfer and recording of all neurosurgical referrals.
This can be found at: https://www.referapatient.org/Home/Index
For patients with brain tumours where you would like them to be discussed at the neuro-oncology MDT, or the Neurosurgery SpR on call advises this, then please complete the form below IN ADDITION TO THE ABOVE so that the MDT Team are fully aware of the patient’s background and current clinical issues.
The referral form should be emailed to the MDT co-ordinator at the following email address: Nuhnt.NuhNeuroOncologyMDT@nhs.net
All sections of the referral form MUST be filled in and emailed to the Neuro-Oncology MDT Co-ordinator. MDTs are held every Friday morning. The results of discussions will be emailed back to the referrers at the end of the meeting to enable patients to be informed of their respective treatment plan.
Please note that there is a dedicated orthopaedic spinal unit at QMC. Referrals concerning spinal trauma and vertebral metastases should be discussed with the spinal unit in the first instance.
