NHS e-Referral is a national electronic service that allows patients to book a convenient time, date and place for your first outpatient appointment at the hospital of you choice. It is available to all patients in England requiring elective care.


Patients will be able to either book their appointment electronically immediately through the practice staff, or they can call a telephone booking service or use the Internet at home later.


If your referral is appropriate for e-Referral, you will be asked by the GP to see one of the receptionist who will make your choose and book appointment for you. They will explain your choices and explain the process to you.
