Why we are using the NHS e-Referral Service

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 defer to provider.

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.

Reduced anxiety

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.
