NHS Referrals

Urgent referrals to other health and social care agencies will be made within one working day of the patient consultation. We will normally process non-urgent referrals within five working days of the patient consultation or the doctor’s decision to refer.

NHS e-referral service (Choose and Book)

If you arranged your referral through the NHS e-Referral Service (Choose and Book) you will need to contact the Choose and Book service to track your referral. You can find more information at the NHS e-Referral website including information on confirmation letters and waiting times.

 Other NHS referrals

If you are trying to find out about an appointment for a clinic or a test e.g. a scan at a hospital, please contact the hospital directly to get further information. Unfortunately, we do not have access to any hospital appointment dates and we are unable to chase these appointments on your behalf.
