If you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) – a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste (anosmia) – the advice is to stay at home for seven days. All members of this household should remain at home for 14 days.

If you think you have symptoms, please do not attend your hospital appointment until you are advised it is safe to do so. Please contact us to rearrange your appointment, or to re-organise treatment and tests.


We are now using an online referral system ensuring speed of access and accurate information transfer and recording of all neurosurgical referrals. 

This can be found at:  https://www.referapatient.org/Home/Index

For patients with brain tumours where you would like them to be discussed at the neuro-oncology MDT, or the Neurosurgery SpR on call advises this, then please complete the form below IN ADDITION TO THE ABOVE so that the MDT Team are fully aware of the patient’s background and current clinical issues.

The referral form should be emailed to the MDT co-ordinator at the following email address: Nuhnt.NuhNeuroOncologyMDT@nhs.net

Neuro Oncology MDT Referral Form

All sections of the referral form MUST be filled in and emailed to the Neuro-Oncology MDT Co-ordinator.  MDTs are held every Friday morning.  The results of discussions will be emailed back to the referrers at the end of the meeting to enable patients to be informed of their respective treatment plan.

Please note that there is a dedicated orthopaedic spinal unit at QMC. Referrals concerning spinal trauma and vertebral metastases should be discussed with the spinal unit in the first instance.
