The NHS e-Referral Service is a secure and free NHS appointment booking service.
What is the NSH e-Referral
NHS e-Referral Service is an electronic booking system that, once your GP decides you need to see a specialist, allows you to book an appointment at a hospital or clinic of your choice, on a date and time that suits you.
You can book, change or cancel your appointments online, by phone, or at the surgery.
If you decide to book online or by phone, we will give you an appointment request letter. This letter includes your unique booking reference number and password. It will also have your NHS Number and a list of hospitals or clinics to choose from.
The shortlist is selected the practice, so make sure you tell us about your preferences during the discussions regarding the referral.
The NHS e-Referral Service will then provide you with information about appointment dates and times available from the shortlisted healthcare providers, allowing you to make a decision that is most suitable for you.
