Referrals to Hospitals, and 'Choose and Book'
Our practice is participating in the Governmental scheme involving the multi-billion new computerised system of referrals to hospital services. This will allow us to offer you the option of making a CHOICE.
This consists of us putting your referral through a new computerised system, which should offer you the option of choosing which hospital you wish to attend.
You will be expected to phone the number given after a period of 5 days, when you can decide which hospital you wish to attend.
Please be aware that for some departments the system does not give us a choice to offer to you, as we are only give one option!
It is important that you do attend the appointment that you have agreed to attend. If you fail to attend you will be discharged and this will result in an even longer time to wait for a further hospital appointment. Please use NHS services responsibly.
