Referrals

What is a referral and why have I been referred?

GPs diagnose and treat many illnesses themselves; however, they occasionally need to
arrange for you to see a specialist hospital doctor. This could be for a number of reasons,
such as:
 Your symptoms need further investigation
 The treatment already prescribed has not been effective
 Investigations your GP arranged have shown some abnormal results
 To be sure it is not a serious disease
There are national guidelines for your GP to use to make a decision about whether to refer you
for an appointment within two weeks.
Why have I been referred?

 Your GP will discuss with you and, if appropriate, your carer, about why a referral is being recommended. It is usually because your GP wants a specialist’s help in deciding on the best way to treat your condition. This might involve referring you for tests or investigations that cannot be carried out in a GP surgery. Your GP will also discuss with you what choices there are for where you can be referred.
How will I hear about where and when the appointment is?

 GP practices and hospitals use different ways of arranging appointments:
  • Your GP practice may give you a reference number and a password you can use to book, change or cancel your appointment online or by phone. In time, more and more GP practices will refer patients in this way.
  • You may receive a letter from the hospital confirming your appointment. You need to reply as soon as possible and tell the hospital if you can attend on the date offered.
  • Alternatively, sometimes patients receive a letter asking them to phone the hospital to make an appointment with a specialist.
