Referral System via E-Referrals
When the doctor refers you to a consultant in secondary care this process gives you, where applicable, the opportunity to choose where & when you go.
Once your referral has been sent to the relevant department by the medical secretary.
E-Referrals gives you a measure of control over where and when you go.
Manage your Referral - With more referrals being made electronically using electronic referral service (e-RS), GP practices have the chance to save more time by empowering patients to book their own appointments online.
The e-RS ‘Manage your Referral’ website is quick and easy to use. It allows patients to book, check, change and cancel their outpatient appointments online without help from the practice. Patients can take control and book their own appointment on a convenient date and time and at their preferred hospital or clinic, if there is a choice. This means no more worried patients contacting or visiting the practice to find out what is happening with their appointment.
Did you know that over 140,000 patients per month are now booking their appointments using the Manage your Referral website
