Referrals: have you been referred?

Have you been referred?

What happens once your GP or nurse has confirmed a referral to a consultant (or specialist) is required:

  • A referral letter will be dictated by your GP (or nurse) and then forwarded to the Referral Management Service (RMS) by our secretarial team

  • The RMS will then contact you to arrange an appointment

  • If the RMS is unable to contact you, an appointment will be made on your behalf and an appointment letter posted

  • Information regarding how to change the appointment, will accompany the appointment letter.

If you have ANY questions about your referral and appointment, please call the RMS on their Freephone number IN THE FIRST INSTANCE (you will need to know your NHS Number included on your appointment letter):

0800 031 6639 or email

The RMS is 08.00 and 18.00 Mon to Fri (excluding Public Holidays).
