The e-Referral Service, or e-RS, allows you to book your initial outpatient appointment at your hospital of choice. Booking your appointment online is safe, easy and secure.
All you need is the booking reference number stated on your booking letter, and the password received from your referrer (e.g. your GP practice). Once logged in you can select your appointment from a list of hospitals and available dates.
e-RS directly benefits you in a number of ways:
Pick the date, time and location of your appointment
Choose your hospital or specialist*
Book, manage or cancel your appointments online
Be referred to your hospital of choice faster
Choosing where to have surgery can be a difficult decision to make – there are various aspects that will affect your decision, some of which are very personal; only you will know exactly what matters most to you. However it’s wise to consider a range of factors including waiting times, on site facilities and patient aftercare.
For further advice on e-RS please contact your GP Practice.
We continue to support NHS England during the Coronavirus crisis by providing the additional capacity it needs to treat non COVID-19 patients, but are now planning a gradual return to treating our own elective patients.
