Schedule or Change your Appointment with the NHS e-Referral Service
If you have been referred by your GP for an appointment into secondary care, you may be able to book your appointment with the NHS e-Referral Service. Most of our services are available via the NHS e-Referral Service. You can choose the date and time of your appointment and your GP may be able to schedule your hospital appointment before you leave the practice.
However, you do have the right to think about your choices and compare different options before you book your appointment online at a later stage. If you choose to do so, you will be given an appointment request letter that includes your Unique Booking Reference Number (UBRN), NHS Number, and a list of hospitals or clinics to choose from. You will be given a password as well, which will allow you to book your appointment via the NHS e-Referral Service, either over the phone using The Appointments Line (TAL) 0345 608 8888 or by logging in to the NHS e-Referral Service online
NHS e-Referral Service will also give you the ability to:
- plan and manage your appointments around any existing appointments if you are currently undergoing treatment.
- fit your treatment in with your other commitments, at home and at work.
- choose appointments that fit in with your carer’s schedule.
- check the status of your referral and change or cancel your appointments easily either over the phone or online.
or call the Telephone Appointments Line (TAL) on 0345 608 8888 (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, excluding bank holidays
