GP Referrals

GPs can choose to refer self paying patients, or those with medical insurance to the Royal Bucks. All our consultants work within fee levels accepted by UK insurers.

Whilst patients may look for a provider themselves, we appreciate they value your suggestions and you wish to propose the best option.

Your patient will be well cared for, at a hospital with a fine safety record and facilities. MRI, ultrasound, x-ray and endoscopy are in house, our consultant team is exceptional.

You are welcome to visit our hospital, or raise any questions by phone, or email. Working with the community and doctors offering support within this is important to us.

Referrals can be made by email, or a letter to The Royal Buckinghamshire Hospital, Buckingham Road, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire HP19 9AB. Ongoing communication with you will remain a priority.

Self Referrals

Privately insured, or self paying patients are both welcome at The Royal Buckinghamshire Hospital. You can choose to refer directly to a consultant of your choice, or call us to ask for advice.

All specialists are listed in our consultants section, offering a choice of over 60 highly skilled clinicians, who chose to work at our hospital.

They feel the ethos of the Royal Bucks and the modern facilities offered allow them to support their patients effectively.

In house provision of medical imaging is particularly useful for patients and their consultants. Our physiotherapy unit, or other therapists are there to provide ongoing support.

Each contribute to returning you to good health, as do comfortable surroundings and good communication. You are welcome to contact us to ask any questions you wish.
