Reduced capacity at the surgery

We continue to experience reduced capacity due to sickness across our GP team and will continue to do so at least until the end of February.  All appointment requests are triaged by a GP and appointments are allocated according to clinical need. There may be times that we have to switch eConsult off on-line to help us manage demand.  We will continue to take requests over the telephone or at our front desk but we may have to restrict requests to urgent medical problems only.

NHS e-Referral (Choose & Book) 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. It’s fast, convenient and secure.

  • The Manage Your Referral website is easy for patients to use. It allows them to book, check, change and cancel their appointments online
  • Patients can take control and book their own appointment on a convenient date and time and at their preferred hospital or Clinic if there is a choice
  • No more worried patients having to contact the Practice to find out what is happening with their appointment

You will normally 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
