General surgery

  • Arthroscopy of the knee
  • Carpal tunnel release
  • Dupuytren’s contracture surgery

  • Knee surgery
  • Knee replacement
  • Trigger finger treatment

Once you have given approval for the patient to use the NHS e-Referral Service, the patient will receive a referral letter which will contain a reference number and password which they will need to log-in, together with their year of birth, on the e-Referral page of the NHS website.

The New Foscote Hospital can be found under The New Foscote Hospital.
