E-Referrals system

Patients in England who need to see a specialist, in many cases are now given more choice over where to receive their hospital treatment. This system that is used to refer them is called the E-Referrals System. Not all appointments are available on the E-Referrals System . 

Research shows that patients want to be more involved in making decisions about their healthcare. The aim of the E-Referal System is to give patients more options when making a decision about which hospital they will be treated at.

With the E-Referrals System  they can also choose the date and time of their first appointment. Patients can book their appointment either with the GP or GP surgery staff, by calling the E-Referrals System website or by calling the University Hospital Booking Centre on 08456 088 888.
