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 in our self-help section that you are able to make self-referrals to without seeing a GP. CLICK HERE to see if you can self-refer.
If you have been referred by one of our GPs the information below may be useful to know. Please appreciate that NHS referrals can take some time depending on the speciality you are referred to.
Our GPs can also refer patients to private providers. It's best if you have a rough idea of which clinic and specialist you wish to be privately referred to if this is something that interests you.
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
