Electronic referrals for private patients now available

referral derby private health gp area electronic referrals ice

Our electronic referral system for referring private patients directly from your surgery. This system will allow you to refer patients with both private health insurance and those who are self-funding for private treatment with Derby Private Health.

The system uses the ICE software and there is a new tab called “Private Patients” (similar to that highlighted in the above screenshot) which leads to a simple referral form.  Once completed, this will instantly submit the referral for any procedure which will then be processed by Private Health’s Admin Team and arrangements will be made for the patient.  Derby Private Health is a private suite located at the Royal Derby Hospital. All the income generated from private patient episodes is returned to the hospital to support all our patients attending the Trust.

If you require any further information or have any issues or problems accessing the system please contact 01332 785200.

Alternatively, please send your referrals through via:

  • Tel: 01332 786128
  • Fax: 01332 787354
  • Email:
  • Post: Derby Private Health, Level 2, Royal Derby Hospital, Uttoxeter New Road, Derby, DE22 3NE

We are pleased to announce that throughout 2019, we will again be hosting a series of educational seminars at Derby Private Health for GPs and health care professionals.

Our seminars will be hosted by our Consultants who will deliver informative presentations based on an area of their expertise, as well as giving you the chance to have your questions answered. There will also be the chance to have a tour of the Derby Private Health suite and find out more about the work that we do and how we reinvest all of our profits back into the NHS locally.

Our seminars will be CPD and CET accredited (where applicable), meaning that you will also earn CPD and CET points for attending our events. You can view our events on the CPD online event calendar here.

Food and drink will also be provided at all events, as well as complimentary car parking passes, allowing you to park on site at the Royal Derby Hospital free of charge.
