Referral To A Specialist

A Clinician may decide to refer you to see a specialist/consultant within another organisation. All referrals are discussed at an Multidisciplinary Team meeting held each morning, where the most appropriate pathway for the patient is agreed. You will be informed of any referral or tests/scans which need to be performed before a referral is processed.

Most referrals to other specialists will require you seeing or speaking with a GP, however, there are a number of services locally, listed below that you are able to make self-referrals to.




Drugs & Alcohol

Sexual Health

Smoking Cessation


Weight Management

NHS e-Referral Tracking

If your doctor has referred you to a specialist for further care you will be asked to book your appointment using the ‘NHS e-Referral’ system.

To track your e-Referral you will need the following details to log into the e-Referral website:
