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.
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.
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
