Since 2015 the NHS has asked that each practice updates patients records to ensure you have a named accountable/usual GP.  We have done this.  This does not prevent you from seeing any GP.   If you would like to know who your accountable/usual GP is, please ask when next in surgery.

e-Referral

doctors_bag3e-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

Once your referral has been processed by the practice, we will send the booking information to you.  You can choose your preferred healthcare provider and book an appointment by telephone or online.

For further information please visit the e-Referral Website.
