Referrals

Your doctor will consider whether you should be referred to a specialist for further diagnosis, tests or treatment. Under new arrangements, you have the choice of which hospital you should visit.

In making this decision you should take into account how you will travel there, as well as how long the waiting list may be, and the hospital’s record on a number of points. For advice on clinical matters, please ask your doctor at the time of your consultation. For other matters, our reception team may be able to help.

If you wish to be treated privately, please mention this to your doctor at the time of your consultation.

 

NHS e-Referral Tracking

If your doctor has referred you to a specialist for further care you will be asked to book your appointment using the ‘NHS e-Referral’ system.

You will receive a letter from us within 2 weeks giving details of how to book your appointment and any passwords you may need.

To track your e-Referral you will need the following details to log into the e-Referral website:

  • Your date of birth
  • Reference number – this will be on the first page of your letter
  • Password – this will be on the second page of your letter
