Referrals and Appointments

Podiatry - Referrals - Top image
All referrals for community based care should be sent to the Whittington Health Central Booking Service. This administration office is based at the Whittington Hospital but deals with community referrals.

This department does not accept referrals for basic nail care without medical need. If nail care support is required, speak to Age UK who provide services within the borough.
You may self-refer to this service using our self-referral form or have a referral made by your health care professional. Please note all referrals for those aged 17 or younger must be made by a health care professional.
Community appointments
Should you be under the care of the podiatry team and have waited over your recommended wait time (as recommended by your podiatrist) you do not require a new referral. Please contact the Whittington Health Central Booking Team to let them know, and they can arrange an appointment for you. 

Community referrals
For routine skin, nail concerns, nail surgery, biomechanics, community based wound care, please contact the Central Booking Service.
