Referrals

NHS e-Referral Service

GPs referring patients to our hospitals must use the NHS e-Referral Service (eRS). From 3rd September 2018 we stopped accepting referrals sent by other means.

Urgent cancer referrals

All cancer two week wait services are available on eRS and must be sent this way.

Written and exception referrals

Some specialist or urgent services may be exempt from Paper Switch Off. Please check our website on a regular basis for details. Guidance on how to refer to these services will also appear here. 

Dental referrals

To help dentists refer to our services, we have set out careful guidelines and special referral forms which must be read carefully and used appropriately.

Service information for clinicians

Each of our services has a dedicated webpage for clinicians, some with detailed referral and guidance information. You can view all of our clinical services here.
