What is NHS E-Referral?
E-Referral is a service that allows you to choose your hospital or clinic and book an appointment with a specialist.
When you and your GP agree that you need to see a specialist, you will be able to choose from at least four hospitals or clinics. You will also be able to choose the date and time of your appointment.
We also offer a 'one-stop' referral service in the mornings at our main site in Milnthorpe; when you and your GP agree you need to see a specialist, you will be directed to reception who will check if the medical secretary is available to arrange your appointment there and then. This booking service takes around 5 minutes.
- You can choose from at least four hospitals
- You can also choose the date and time for your appointment.
- There is less chance that information will get lost in the post because more correspondence takes place through computers.
