e-Referral is a service that allows you to choose your hospital or clinic and book an appointment with a specialist. When you and your GP agree that you need to see a specialist, you will be able to choose from a number of service providers the five closet hospitals are:
- Newark General Hospital
- Kings Mill Hospital
- Queens Medical Centre
- Nottingham City Hospital
- Lincoln County Hospital
The Benefits of e-Referral
- You can also choose the date and time of your appointment.
- You experience greater convenience and certainty. With the old system, your hospital or clinic chose the date and time of your appointment. This may not have been convenient for you. With e-Referral, the choice is yours.
- There is less chance that information will get lost in the post as information is shared electronically.
Booking your Appointment
During your consultation, the doctor will discuss which hospital you would like to attend. Your referral will be sent to the Newark & Sherwood Gateway and they will contact you to arrange your hospital appointment.
