Self Referral For Local Services

Most referrals to other specialists will require you seeing or speaking with a GP, however, there are a number of services locally, listed below that you are able to make self-referrals to.

 

Hospital Referrals

Members of the national working group and, specifically, NHS England, British Medical Association (BMA) and the National Association for Patient Participation (NAPP), have come together again to produce a patient facing leaflet, so that patients know what they can expect to happen if they are referred by their GP to see a specialist or consultant at a hospital or a community health centre.

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.

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
