What is NHS e-RS Referral Service?
The NHS e-Referral Service (e-RS) combines electronic booking with a choice of place, date and time for first hospital or clinic appointments
How NHS e-RS Referral service Works?
When you and your GP agree that you need an appointment with a specialist, the GP will write a referral and you can book your first hospital or clinic appointment using e-Referral.
e-Referrals is a service that lets you choose your hospital or clinic. You will also be able to choose the date and time of your first appointment.
For Fast Track Cancer NHS e-RS Referrals The GP completes an e- referral books an appointment for you during your consultation leaving the practice with your printed appointment details which includes your unique booking reference number, your NHS number and password for you to keep in a safe place.
For other NHS e-RS Referrals The GP completes referral and the Request is printed off with your unique booking reference number, your NHS number and password for you to manage your own bookings.
we encourage all our patients to look after their own bookings and appointments through the Manage Your Referral website. This means patients will be able to manage their appointments 24/7, allowing them to check, cancel or change their bookings around the clock.
Your request details can be collected at the reception desk the following day.
It will show a list of hospitals or clinic options for you to choose.
Please book within 10 working days.
If you loose your Booking Form please telephone the Practice Secretary on 0207-735-4412 between 8am-12noon and she will be able to give you the details again.
If you do not book an appointment within 10 working days of collecting your Booking Form the hospital will send a reminder letter. If you have not booked an appointment within 3 month of your referral it may have been cancelled, so you will need to be referred again.
