Referral Guide

Preparing for your Consultation

When arranging an appointment with Prof. Malham at our private consulting rooms, our Practice Manager will provide you with all the relevant information, so that you are fully prepared for your appointment.

Prof. Malham is pleased to see patients with neurosurgical spine conditions, that provide:

  • A Current Referral from a General Practitioner or Specialist. These referrals are valid for 12 months or 3 months respectively, and
  • Radiological Scan Reports (showing the current Neurosurgical condition). These scans must be less than 6 months old.

This information will confirm whether Prof. Malham can assist, and if neurosurgery / spine surgery is required.


Our staff will contact the patient for an appointment following receipt of the required information as stated above, and if neurosurgery is required.

If there is no surgical problem identified, the referring practitioner will be contacted directly by Prof. Malham’s team.

You are welcome to have someone accompany you to your appointment. However, we would not recommend having more than one person with you during your appointment.

If you need to cancel your appointment, please give as much notice as possible, as you may be charged for the appointment if you fail to give notice.
