GP Referrals

At Wellington Diagnostics & Outpatients Centre our aim is to provide a customised service for you and your patients, ensuring a smooth and comfortable patient journey at all times. We are available to help with a variety of queries from patient referrals to explaining hospital services and educational seminars.

Our team consists of four officers each dedicated to specific areas in London. We appreciate a quick friendly service helps make your day easier, and to lighten the load, each of our remote-working officers is backed up by our dedicated Enquiry Helpline.

The helpline team consists of five GP Liaison Assistants who can book consultations, arrange diagnostic scans, and coordinate outpatient tests. In addition to this service the GP Liaison Assistants can help arrange urgent GP admissions via our Acute Admissions Unit based at the main Wellington Hospital. They also have a wide range of knowledge about the hospital and the area and can help with any general queries as well.

Our GP Liaison Officers work closely with Consultant Liaison team at The Wellington Hospital to provide a range of talks for our referring GPs. We can hold consultant led talks on site at the Centre, or we can bring the consultant to your practice to talk at a time to suit you.

If you have not yet met a member of the team, here is a chance to find out a little bit more about each of us and the areas we support:

Ricky McKinson, North & East London

Ricky McKinson made a positive move from our Enquiry Helpline team, bringing with him a wealth of information about the whole Wellington Hospital Campus. Using his close ties with the hospital appointment team, Ricky has an in-depth knowledge of consultants, radiology referrals and GP educational event. Ricky role focuses on the North & East London regions.

'In my previous position as a GP Liaison Assistant I have been able to build strong relationships with the consultant secretaries and fully understand the referral process our local GP practices must negotiate. I have first-hand experience dealing with radiology referrals for both the Platinum Medical Centre and the Wellington Diagnostics & Outpatients Centre in Golders Green.

'I have already been involved in administrating many GP events and am looking forward to assisting more consultants to visit the surgeries to speak directly to the GPs. This will mean GPs can directly access our top consultants and learn more about how patient's conditions and illnesses can be treated.'
