Friends of St John

Welcome to the dedicated area for actively referring, local Primary Care clinicians. If you are not an actively referring local Primary Care clinician, please check out our For Health Professionals page instead.

Please contact our Primary Care Engagement Manager if you need advice about our services, more information or help referring your patient.

Practice education

We provide ‘lunch and learns’ with our specialists to local practices.

If your practice regularly refers their patients to our Hospital, and is within a three-miles, please click the button below to request a ‘lunch and learn’, either virtually or in-person.

Practice training

We are able to provide a range of free sessions to local practices, either remotely or in-person.

From Basic Life Support (BLS), to 1to1 or group non-clinical skills training like time efficiency, empathy and handling difficult patients, St John’s can help your practice to develop key skills that benefit your patients.

Ask a specialist

You may have a specific clinical question about a patient that needs specialist input. Click below to ask a question to our Consultant body.

There is no obligation to refer. We will respond to your query within two working days.

Coming soon!

By invitation only: To protect our vulnerable patients, we have had to halt our famous in-person events. Once it is deemed safe to invite visitors back to our Hospital, we will be inviting our closest referring Primary Care colleagues to attend specific CPD education or training sessions in-person. You will have a chance to see our facilities, meet our speakers and ask specific questions once the cameras stop rolling!
