Referrals and Self Referrals

Hospital Referrals

Our NHS referrals are now made electronically. Where possible we will provide you with the date and time of your appointment when making the referral.

Alternatively your doctor may be asked to submit your case for advice and treatment guidance to  be offered by a local specialist. The recommended actions would then be carried out by your doctor and the practice team.

Self-referral For Local Services

There are a number of services locally, listed below that you are able to make self-referrals to. This means the patient can complete the referral themsleves without needing to consult with their GP first. Please click on the links below to access the relevant details


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
