If your GP decides that it is necessary to refer you to see a specialist at hospital, your referral will be usually be sent via "e-Referrals", our electronic referrals system. These referrals are sent to the Newark & Sherwood Gateway, who will contact you to offer a choice of hospitals and appointments for the appropriate specialist you need to see.
The Newark & Sherwood Gateway are open from 8.00 am to 5.00 pm Monday to Friday (7.00 pm on Wednesday) and can be contacted on 01636 894933.
Further details about the Newark & Sherwood Gateway will be sent to you with a copy of your referral letter. The patient information leaflet is also available to view here:

Occasionally it is not possible to send referrals through the Newark & Sherwood Gateway. When this is the case, we will either book your appointment directly with the hospital ourselves, or ask the hospital to contact you to arrange an appointment. We will let you know if this affects your referral.
