Your child will need a referral letter from your GP to see a Paediatric Specialist. (This includes a paediatrician, paediatric subspecialist or surgeon).
GP referrals are generally valid for 12 months only. After 12 months, you will need your GP to make a new referral. You will also need a new GP referral letter if you are attending for a new problem.
Note: referrals provided by a specialist are only valid for 3 months.
