On some occasions it may be necessary for your GP to refer you to see a specialist. If this is the case your GP will discuss all of the different options available to you. Once you have decided where you would like to attend or the different options that you would like to choose between, the GP will ask the practice secretary to make the referral. The practice secretary can be contacted by telephoning the surgery.
The practice uses the NHS Electronic Referrals System (ERS) to refer our patients. The ERS is a service that allows you to choose your hospital or clinic and book an appointment with a specialist when your GP refers you. Our practice secretary will send you all of the information that you will need to use the ERS.
