Service News & PSO Updates
Over 80% of our first, new, GP referred, Consultant led, Outpatient clinic appointments are available to be referred and scheduled into the Trust through the NHS e-Referral Service. All of the Trust’s OPD clinics that meet these criteria will be open to e-RS by March 31st.
The Standard Contract for 2018/19 requires the full use of the NHS e-Referral Service (eRS) for all consultant-led first outpatient appointments. From 1 October 2018, providers will only be paid for activity resulting from referrals made through eRS. This will support local health communities to plan for the paper switch off for elective referrals.
Using the e-Referral Service brings a number of benefits to GPs and St George’s Healthcare. The system provides a full directory of all the secondary care services available at the Trust accessible through the Directory of Services as well as those services locally commissioned by Primary Care Trusts.
You can find out more about what the NHS e-Referral Service offers by reading our NHS e-Referral Service Myth Buster

Check out our PSO Progress Reports
33 Specialties have over 80% of their OPD appointment slots linked to eRS and are ready to move to receiving all referrals via eRS now (see eRS Readiness Report. These Specialties are in green).
Slot Availability: 83%
During the appointment booking process the NHS e-Referral Service will allow the referral to enter the ASI process if there are no slots available for booking at the time of the appointment search. This action is called ‘Defer to Provider’. Each time the referral is deferred the referral will appear on our ‘Appointment Slot Issues’ worklist. At St George’s, we are working to ensure that all of our Outpatient appointments are available to eRs. Increasing slot availability helps to keep this number low.
It is this action we are reporting. The national standard is to keep ASI’s to below 4%. Provider ASI reports are generated monthly by NHS Digital. Below you can compare our Trust to our closest competitors geographically.
Appointment Slot Issues: 2.9%
Before we start sending out communications regarding submitting OPD referrals soley through eRS we need to see our utilisation of the NHS e-Referral Service increase to at least 80%. With your help we plan to bring our utilisation up from where it is now to at least 80% by 31 July.
This information is published weekly by NHS Digital and is available on their website.
Referrers can see our eRS utilisation below, as well as the eRS utilisation for Wandsworth & Merton CCG’s.
GPs and practice staff can direct the patient to use the NHS eRS appointments line or the internet where they are unable to complete the booking themselves. Flexibility in the e-Referral Service means that the referral process can be adapted to suit different working conditions and you can identify services with shortest waiting times.
You can access service-specific guidance to help shortlist the most appropriate services and highlight any helpful preliminary investigations. Advice and guidance from specialists can be sought prior to referral, supporting the development of better referral pathways and closer collaboration with secondary care colleagues.
GPs and practice staff can track the progress of a patient’s referral through the e-Referral Service and will have much greater access to patient care management plans, ensuring that the correct appointments are made. The system also reduces the amount of time spent on paperwork and administration costs.
Booking your NHS e-Referral Service appointment
You can contact the NHS e-Referral Service at the following times, using the numbers below:
Please use the reference number and password from the patient’s appointment request letter. You will need to have these in front of you when booking an appointment.
Help and guidance
Please search our services to find the service you are looking for. Clinicians in all specialties have been involved to ensure that our information accurately reflects the services that we offer.
Two-week rule referrals are also supported by the NHS e-Referral Service. If there are no slots available, please fax the referral proforma to the two-week rule office on 0208 725 0778.
Reduction in DNAs
Data from previous electronic booking pilots show that when patients are given a choice of date and time for their appointments they are more likely to attend. This leads to fewer wasted appointments and helps to improve the overall efficiency of outpatient clinics.
Reduction in non-clinical primary care consultations
The amount of time spent by administrative support staff in responding to patients’ enquiries about the progress of referrals is huge. In some cases a patient will book an appointment with their GP specifically to enquire about their referral. This reduces the amount of clinical time available in a practice. Eliminating this administrative burden brings an immediate benefit in primary care for patients, GPs and practice staff.
Reliable and comprehensive clinical information
Referral information from primary care systems will be made available to hospital clinicians in a legible and consistent format. Development of the National Care Record service will allow relevant patient information supplied by GP and hospital systems to be accessed by authorised users wherever and whenever it is needed.
Benefits for patients
Increased provision of services which are convenient to patients.
The journey through the NHS is increasingly patient focused. Appointments and admissions are made in discussion with the patient to get a mutually suitable date and time.
Waiting to hear about appointments is a key concern for all patients. The electronic booking of appointments provides patients with more certainty. This helps them make arrangements and plan for the appointment. They will know straight away when their appointment will be, so they don’t have to wait for a confirmation letter to arrive.
Increased referral security
The system gives patients confidence that the referral information reaches the hospital. The information is protected by a series of stringent access controls and information governance. The system can also update referrals with up-to-date clinical developments.
