Referrals

Electronic Referrals Service (e-RS)

The Electronic Referrals Service (e-RS) allows you to choose your hospital or clinic and book an appointment with a specialist.

When you see your GP and agree that you need to see a specialist, you will be referred via e-RS and be able to choose the date and time of your appointment.

For more information see the NHS e-Referral Service

NHS e-Referral Tracking

If your doctor has referred you to a specialist for further care you will be asked to book your appointment using the ‘NHS e-Referral’ system.

You will receive a letter from us within 2 weeks giving details of how to book your appointment and any passwords you may need.

To track your e-Referral you will need the following details to log into the e-Referral website:

  • Your date of birth
  • Reference number – this will be on the first page of your letter
  • Password – this will be on the second page of your letter
